The first match played between the two sides was
recorded on 8th August 1954 at the Kumasi Jackson Park which Kotoko won by 3-0.
But it will be the 109th meeting between the two clubs in the Ghana Premier League and it will be 197th in all-time meetings since 8th August 1954. The League meetings do not include the 2018 & 2019-20 league seasons that were cancelled.
All the truncated Seasons are not part of their official league meetings since it was declared null and void but are part of their all-time meetings.
Their First League game between the two sides was played on 24th August 1958 at Sir Francis Jackson’s Park in Kumasi but the match was abandoned in the 70th minute because Gargo Moro, a Kotoko player who was sent off refused to go off the pitch. Hearts were leading 3-0 at 1st Half and Kotoko used ten minutes to score 3 goals but Hearts made it 4-3.
The bragging right is up for grabs. The Porcupine Warriors troop into the land of the rainbow club ready to lodge it’s dozens of quills on it’s predator but the rainbow club is determined to display high in the skies.
