Berekum Arsenal FC
Berekum Arsenal FC has a rich and storied history, coming up from the Second Division to play in Ghana’s Premier League for 13 years, from 2001 to 2014, before a temporary relegation to Division One. In 2006 Berekum Arsenal played in the CAF Confederation Cup, where the club got through to the second round.
During this time Berekum Arsenal produced top players like John Panstil (Fulham), Emmanuel Agyemang Badu (Udinese), Poku Nana (Club Shabab of UAE), and Stephen Sarfo (Tadamon Sour of Lebanon), as well as others who went on to play in other Ghanaian clubs like Hearts of Oak, Asante Kotoko and Liberty Professionals.
This year, Berekum Arsenal reached the semi-finals in the Normalization Special Tournament, which replaced League play while Ghana aligned its season calendar, losing only to giants Asante Kotoko.
Man of the Match 11 times and with 16 goals in 17 matches, Berekum Arsenal’s star striker Ansu Kofi Patrick was the Tournament’s top scorer.
This July Berekum Arsenal is hosting SoccerExpo’s African Players Tournament, showcasing talented new African players to leading international clubs. Ansu Kofi Patrick will be at the Tournament too, so come along to meet him!
