I grew up to witness a powerful Hearts of oak supporters, whose passion, zeal, energy and commitment in supporting a football club were above the moon. This group of supporters could go to the extreme to see their team wins and indeed were successful in doing that. This group was known for its astonishing chanting, drumming and singing which sent striking stroke of a wave that pierce the hearts of perplexed players who have lost hope because their side is on the losing end, to turn things around in their favour.
Former players have testified what the supporters meant to them when all is lost in a particular game
I remember a stanched supporter of the famous chapter O who narrated the extreme conditions some of them went to ensuring one of their remarking wins over their bitterly rival in 2004.
Hearts of Oak have won all continental trophies in a remarking fashion and they did all this with the help of their relentless supporters
The once free-trophy-winning side has gone a decade without a silverware
Hearts of oak has moved from the most attractive brand in Ghana football in the 2000s to loathsome in recent years
The club has failed to assemble any formidable side in recent years, Fans have lost hope in the top hierarchy of the club hence abandoned trooping into the various stadia to support their beloved club.
No matter how you want to look at, the supporters must help management to bring back the club lost glory
The current management led by Federick Moore has been impressive in this deadly Coronavirus pandemic by securing some interesting partnership deals with companies to add to what he inherited, Pobiman projected still taking shape after the contractor’s commerce work a few months ago.
The attitude of the leadership of the club clearly shows they are ready and committed to bringing Hearts back to where it belongs in Africa football.
Today Hearts held a ceremony to officially launch a partnership deal with Star Life Assurance who as part of their agreement obligations gave out a 48-seater Hyundai bus.
When the deal was announced a few months ago the leadership of national chapters committee is quoted to have said
”The NCC is also as excited as star life with regards to this partnership. They can’t wait for it to materialise.”
Upon this that I call on the Leadership of the supporter’s fraternity to embark on a ruthless campaign to get all the fans on board to know the need for patronizing the current business who are in contract with their beloved club
I will urge them to buy the products of Star Life Assurance to instil confidence in them and other potential sponsors.
The attitude of the NCC towards Umbro replica Jersey debacle where fans failed to buy a larger chunk of the jerseys should never happen again.
God bless Accra Hearts of oak
