This is down to ongoing renovation works at Samartex’s home venue, the Nsenkyire Sports Arena to meet the Club Licensing Board’s standards.
This in accordance to Samartex Business Development Manager Paul Anyaba is an unlucky scenario for the staff’s passionate fan base. Samartex performs Berekum Chelsea on Monday, September 19 in Tarkwa.
“It’s unfortunate from our fans perspective because they’ve been with this team for 26 years hoping and praying for qualification and it is unfortunate that their first premier league game which is historic cannot be hosted at the Nsenkyire Sports Arena in Samreboi. However, I can report that we have done a lot of work on the facility, especially the pitch…we hope that the venue will be approved” he said.
Samartex drew goalless with Real Tamale United at the Aliu Mahama Stadium in Tamale within the opening spherical of games within the 2022-2023 Season.
Its subsequent opponent, Berekum Chelsea, beat King Faisal 2-0 within the earlier spherical.
