Hearts Hit Massive Jackpot As Kotoko Clash Rakes In $100,000 ? More To Come  

Hearts of Oak are laughing all the way to the bank as their mammoth clash against Kotoko in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday grossed $102,000 with much more expected to come.

The GH? 204,000 represents just the proceeds from the gates on the match day in the Ghanaian derby against their arch rivals.

With the amount from the advanced tickets sold yet to come in, Hearts are expected to break last season?s record GH? 206,000 at the same venue.

The Phobians even think they could have had a bigger amount but for the fire outbreak which gutted the Kantamanto market in the business district capital of Accra.

The market is a hotbed for fans of both clubs and owing to the huge businesses there and proximity to the stadium there could have hundreds of high-paying fans who could have attended the game.

The financial boost for the Phobians means with more efforts geared towards attracting the fans back to the stadium they could be able to challenge clubs like Kotoko, Berekum Chelsea and Medeama in the transfer market.

Hearts played out a 1-1 draw with the arch-rivals in front of an encouraging crowd.
