Hearts of Oak officials insists fans must pay to watch Black Stars training
Though Accra Hearts of Oak are not in charge of the Black Stars’ Wednesday morning training session, they are asking fans to pay for their entry due to their Ghana Premier League tie with Inter Allies.
The Phobians have told fans to pay for their match tickets if they want to watch the Black Stars hold their second training session in Accra as the training time clashes with their match schedule.
Hearts officials claim they open gates for ticket sales at 12 noon and if they allow fans to have free access to the Accra Sports Stadium before gates officially open for their week 28 clash, it will disrupt their plans and affect attendance.
“What we are basically saying is that gates will be opened at 9 AM so if you want to watch the Black Stars’ training session, you would have to buy the match ticket because we cannot allow fans in and try to get them out after 12 PM and start out ticket sale,” Hearts communications head Muheed Saeed told Accra-based Happy FM.
Locals swarmed the Accra Sports Stadium to watch the Black Stars train on Tuesday but might to have the chance to watch the training on Wednesday due to the new arrangement.
The Black Stars training starts at 9 AM and ends at 12 PM, a time Hearts’ reserves will be getting ready to take on Inter Allies reserves before the main kick-off three hours later.
