A former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brong Ahafo (BA) United Football Club FC Ransford Antwi, has initiated fundraising and support campaign for the bitterest rival, Bofoakwa Tano FC to enhance their chances of qualifying for the Ghana Premier League.

The campaign dubbed “Operation Bofo Bɛba 2021” seeks to mobilize funds and galvanize support to help energize players and staff of Bofoakwa Tano in their last three games of the Division One Zone One league.

Speaking in an interview at Sunyani in the Bono Region, Mr Antwi expressed optimism about the juicy prospects that await businesses and individuals if a team from Sunyani once again joined the Ghana Premier League.

“Bofo is almost there and we must push them to finish hard so that Sunyani will have a Premier League club to contribute to the holistic development of our region.

“Everyone knows I am a die-hard BA United supporter and I do not usually support activities of Bofoakwa Tano but Sunyani deserves Premier League action and it is time to support our own and time to fight for what is ours,” Mr Antwi stressed.

The former BA United boss appealed to all people in the Bono region, especially Sunyani to join his campaign for support whilst donating generously towards the agenda.

He further indicated that “this is the first time in my life I will lead a campaign to galvanize support for my bitterest rivals, Bofo, I, therefore, call on all sons and daughters of our city and region to help us regain our position as having the highest number of clubs in the Ghana Premier League”.

Bofoakwa Tano, after 28 matches, is leading the Division One Zone One league table with 61 points whereas the biggest competitor, Real Tamale United follows closely with 56 points at the second position.

Bofoakwa Tano will next host Wamanafo Mighty Royals before travelling to face Berekum Arsenal to end the season.
