This comes after the GFA wrote to Asante Kotoko SC and AshantiGold SC to confirm their participation in next season’s CAF Inter Club competitions.
The Miners have also communicate in a letter to the GFA that they are bent on representing the country in CAF second tier competition this year.
A club statement read: Upon receiving a notice from the Ghana Football Association, Ashantigold SC on Thursday, 3rd September 2020 confirmed to the Association to participate in the 2020/21 CAF confederations cup.
The club has taken steps to effectively comply with all directives with regards to the CAF club licensing application procedures.
