Medeama SC to resume camping on Friday ahead of CAF Champions League

Medeama Sporting Club will begin camping for the 2023-2024 season with the African Super League in sight.

The Ghana Premier League champions are expected to resume for pre-season at Tarkwah this Friday as preparations for participation in the susceptible-to-change-of-name African Super League to begin.

The champions are prospecting for reinforcements for the pending African football which starts in October. Medeama are still waiting to learn their opponents in the African Super League.

“In October this year, the inaugural Super League will commence; some people were asking for the dates, we have it,” Motsepe revealed during the FIFPRO Africa Congress in Gaborone, Botswana.

“Some of the big sponsors are saying ‘the history of the Super League in Europe was not good.’

“If you associate the name ‘super’ with a football competition, it has negative connotations. We may change the name, but what indeed is going to happen in October is the inaugural. I will keep using the name ‘the African Super League’ until we change it.

The competition which comes in as the first edition to replace the CAF Champions League offers a flexible chances for Ghanaian sides. The tournament will be played in three regional zones North, Central/West and South/East.

The format, only if will be deployed, will see Medeama avoid North African clubs in early stages who have seized progression of Ghanaian clubs in CAF Inter Club football in years now.

Despite the likelihood of escaping the Northern forces, Medeama still need to build a solid side and have been linked with a host of players.

Medeama have already signed Tamale City midfielder Godknows Dzakpasu.

They are weighing the chances of signing Accra Lions midfielder Dominic Nsobila who helped Ghana in the AFCON U-23 in Morocco. The champions are slightly ahead in battle with Asante Kotoko for the Black Meteors midfielder Nsobila.

They are also tracking Young Africans and Ghanaian forward Bernard Morrison. Medeama have also set sight on Asante Kotoko midfielder Richmond Lamptey but that deal doesn’t look likely this summer.

While returning to training on Friday, more first team players are expected to resume to begin business for African campaign.
