Sunderland have invited Asante Kotoko for an exchange programme visit next month, the English Premier League side have confirmed.
The trip will help the current the newly constituted board to learn the full operations of Sunderland and replicate it in the development of the defending Ghanaian champions.
“We have invited the Kotoko Board to come and visit us in early October,” Commercial Director of Sunderland Gary Hutchinson said.
“They are coming to look at our full operations and see how it works and bring the best practices back to Ghana to run Kotoko in various forms.
“They will also engage in various discussions which are all geared towards cementing a good partnership between the two parties.”
Kotoko signed a partnership deal with the Black Cats in July 2011 under the Dr KK Sarpong tenure as Executive Board Chairman.
