Medeama Sporting Club will look to make a name for themselves when they take to the challenge in the CAF Champions League, that is according to the club’s President, Moses Armah.
The Tarkwa-based side became the first Ghanaian club since 2012 to secure qualification to the group stage of the continental club competition following a 4-3 aggregate win over Guinean side Horoya.
A first-leg 3-1 win at the Cape Coast Stadium was good enough to take the Ghana Premier League champions to the next stage despite losing 2-1 in Conakry.
Addressing the press on Monday following their qualification to the group stage, Armah spoke about the team’s desire to be more than just participants.
“We don’t want to be mere participants in this competition hence our call for government and corporate Ghana to come to our aid,” he said.
“Our experience in participating in the CAF club competitions has taught us that you need not less than $150,000 to play in a game. For example, our two games before qualification cost us $300,000.
“We plead that the government and corporate Ghana to come to our aid as we plan to take Africa by storm.”
Medeama are also expected to play their Champions League games at the Tarkwa TNA Park which is currently under construction.
