Asante Kotoko plans to embark on another project to fully accommodate its first team.

The club has commenced construction of a hostel facility to start of its youth academy.

This project is partly being funded by a grant given the club by DR Congo giants TP Mazembe.

The club however aims at raising another structure to fully accomoate its first team by the time the current project is completed.

“After the construction of the Fabulous academy we will be embarking on another accommodation construction for the first team,” Kotoko chairman Dr K.K Sarpong told Angel FM.

“It will be a one bedroom self contain for each player in the senior team.

“Fortunately we have had offers from people who are ready to contribute towards this project also.

“So we are looking at transforming that area into the Kotoko village that we have always dreamt of.”

    IN THE LAND OF THE BLIND, THE 1 EYED MAN IS KING. KK SARPONG WILL ONLY SUCEED IN REGRESSING THE CLUB BACKWARDS AND IN MORE DEBT. SPEND THE MONIES IN A CLUB STADIUM. THIS WILL AUTOMATICALLY GENERATE MORE THAN ENUFF REVENUE. WAT U ARE DOING WONT BRING THE CLUB ANY MONEY. JUST GIVE THE PLAYERS THE CONTRACTS N MONIES THEY DESERVE N LET THEM FIND THEIR OWN PLACES TO LIVE. THIS IS WAT HAPPENS OVERSEAS. INFACT, BUILD A HOTEL OR 2 N HOUSE THE PLAYERS IN THERE WHEN THEY R CAMPING. WHEN THEY R NOT CAMPING, U MAKE MONEY OUT OF IT. THIS FOOL SARPONG DONT KNOW HOW TO GENERATE REVENUE

      this is a baseless and clueless comment you have made. for the past years Kotoko has not seen any infrastructural development and you sit here whining about nothing when someone with vision is doing something meaningful for the club. such narrow minded people should not be entertained

        jb, u see how dumb u are? baba yara is NOT THE PROPERTY PF KOTOKO. IT BELONGS TO THE MIN OF SPORTS. IF KOTOKO WANTS TO DO ANYTHING INFRASTRUCTURAL, SHOULDNT IT INVEST IN A CLUB STADIUM IN THE FIRST PLACE. THAT WAY U CAN AT LEAST GUARANTEEE THAT THE CLUB WILL REEL IN 100 PERCENT GATE FEE, PARKING, AD SPACE REVENUE FOR ALL GAMES. THINK…. SELLING PLAYERS AND USING THE MONIES TO BUILD ACADEMIES AND ACCOMMODATION FOR PLAYERS WONT BRING US ANY REVENUE. AND U HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ME NARROW MINDED, U FAGGOT

      THE BIGGEST THIEVES ARE RICH PPL, IN CASE YOU DONT KNOW. HOW DO YOU THINK THEY STAY RICH?

        Sometimes we tend to forget that even though we might have a valid question,suggestion or solution, the way we portray or profess it might not reach it intended purpose. Must u insult someone who is either older or much experienced in life than you for trying to do something good. Instead if you want to be listened to, you have to devoid your statement of insults and propagate your message across. Though you have a valid point building of a stadium is not a child’s play. I’m very sure Dr KK has a long term plan for that construction of the stadium with time bounds and all the necessary things needed

        • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

          REAL GH, COMMON SENSE AS THEY SAY ISNT COMMON. JUST BCOS U ARE OLD DOES NOT MEAN U POSSES THE BEST BRAINS OR SENSE IN THE WORLD, OK. EVEN A BLIND PERSON CAN SEE THE FOOLISH BEING PERPETRATED BY KK SARPONG. SELLING BEST KOTOKO PLAYERS, USING THE MONEY FOR USELESS PROJECTS LIKE PLAYER ACCOMMODATION, YOUTH ACADEMIES ETC. WILL THESE PROJECTS BRING IN REVENUE FOR THE CLUB? THATS ALL IM ASKING…IT WONT. SO WE WILL CONTINUE TO SELL OUR BEST PLAYERS, AND USE YOUTH ACADEMY PLAYERS TO WIN CHAMPIONS L;EAGUE AND PREMIER TROPHIES? U ARE DREAMING INDEED…HW3, NO ONE ASKED OBAMA TO BE PRESIDENT. NO FORCED OTUMFUOR TO BE KING. IF U CANT HANDLE THE HEAT…U KNOW WAT TO DO….

    @ GHANA FUO-: infact, your penchant for puerile comments clearly shows that, there is more hope for thousand fools than for you. You are clearly an embodiment of a wasted birth and a great testament of a wasted years of parental and educational efforts. I am sorry to say, You are a waste of resources. Grow up and stop being ……………

  8. DEDE AM AFOOL says:

    its a bad idea , if u hse players together there will be rivalry among them, problem between their girl friends n children which will affect performance.
    lets give them money to find their own hse or find hses in various places for them ,not in the same compound….

    • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

      dede, dont mind these FOOLISH GYIMI GYIMI DUMB DUMMIES IN GH. DO U SEE AC MILAN, MARSEILLE, CHELSEA DOING WAT KK SARPONG IS DOING IN GH? NO, THESE CLUBS PAY THEIR PLAYERS WELL. SO THEY CAN AFFORD THE TOYS AND APARTMNTS, CONDOS THEY PREFER TO LIVE IN. WHEN THE COACH CALLS THEM TO COME AND TRAIN, THEY ARRIVE AND MAKE SURE THEY ARRIVE ON TIME. OR FACE THE NECESSARY DISCIPLINARY CONSEQUENCES. WAT IS THE POINT IN SELLING OUR BEST PLAYERS AND USING THE REVUNUES TO BUILD ACCOMMODATION FOR PLAYERS? WHO WANTS TO BE CAMPED WITH FELLOW PLAYERS FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON. IS THIS COMMUNISM OR WAT? DUMB IDIOTS DONT KNOW ANY BETTER. THEY R CONSTIPATED IN THE BRAIN, AND YET THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO QUESTION MY THINKING…

    I tell u folks, Gh fuo is smoking something more dangerous than crack n opiom combined. Gh fuo, what hav u been smoking? Can i get some? U are pathetic. Get a life hothead…

    if the project is to serve as a housing project to accomodate players then i support GHFUO.
    Besides the picture of the project looks like a mere unit block which is quite low class. It will only be a few years and some players would not like to live there.

  11. GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

    INSTEAD OF SPENDING ALL THIS ONEY ON USELESS PROJECTS LIKE PLAYER ACCOMMODATION. THEY SHOULD TEAR IT APART. GO AND BORROW SOME MONEY. ADD IT TO WHATEVER THAY HAVE AND BEGIN TO BUILD A KOTOKO STADIUM, WITH A HOTEL, PARKING LOT, FOOD/CONCESSIONS AREA, CLUB PARAPHERNALIA SALES ETC….IN LESS THAN 10 YRS, THE REVENUES ACCRUED FROM THE STADIUM WILL PAY BACK THE LOANS.
    WAT KK SARPONG IS DOING IS NOT EVEN DONE IN S AFRICA OR ANYWHERE IN EUROPE WITH MARSEILLE, CHELSEA, REAL MADRID ETC.EACH PLAYER FINDS THEIR OWN PLACE TO LIVE BE IT IN A HOTEL, CONDO, APARTMENT OR HOUSE. ONCE THE COACH TELLS YOU TO REPORT TO CAMP, U SHOW UP. CAN U IMAGINE BALOTELLI LIVING IN SUCH A PLAYER’ QUARTERS WITH HIS OTHER KOTOKO TEAMMATES? TWEAAA!

  12. Kk u ar there 2 meet it,God bless u. u huv a vision in ur heart
