2019/2020 MTN FA Cup R64: Hearts get Danbort, Kotoko to face Deportivo, see full list
The draw, which came off at the GFA Secretariat on Tuesday, involved 46 lower-tier clubs that progressed from the preliminary round and 18 Ghana Premier League clubs who are entering the competition at this stage.
In his remarks, Chairman of the MTN FA Cup Committee, Wilson Arthur said:
“Each of the 64 clubs is entitled to GH¢2,000 as participating fee and would also receive GH¢500 worth of airtime plus travelling clubs would get fuel support.
“At this stage, we are still using the regional groupings to ballot. And the reason why we are adopting the regional groupings is motivated by the fact that we want to create more local derbies.
“We’ve scheduled the matches to be played between February 21 and 24,” he added.
The draw threw up three all-Premier League ties – Aduana Stars vs Bechem United; Karela United vs Medeama SC and Legon Cities vs Inter Allies.
In the Ashanti Region is a Kumasi derby between Asante Kotoko and Division One side Asokwa Deportivo who are normal tough customers for the record winners.
Hearts of Oak would be making a short trip within Accra to face Division One side Danbort FC at Nungua Town Park.
The winner of the 2019/20 MTN FA Cup would receive GH¢80,000 as prize money with the runner-up set to take home GH¢30,000 cash.
