Ghana's two biggest clubs will square off in a fixture aimed at commemorating the west African nation's separation from colonial rule.

Organisers Justin Addo and Nana Yaw Amponsah were present alongside Minister for Youth and Sports Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah, Chief Director of the Ministry Frank Quist, Ghana FA President Kurt E.S. Okraku and General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo.

Hearts and Kotoko will leave Ghana on 4 March and return 8 March to continue with the Ghana Premier League.
