MTN FA Cup Committee Chairman, Wilson Arthur, has dismissed the notion that this season’s final will not be exciting due to the early exit of top Premier League clubs.

Despite the elimination of league leaders Aduana FC in the quarterfinals, Arthur believes that the remaining teams- Nsoatreman FC, Dreams FC, King Faisal FC, and Skyy FC- will still provide an entertaining competition.

In an interview with Citi Sports, Arthur suggested that the early exit of the top teams was due to their poor performance in the tournament.

“If the big teams are the best teams, they will stay in the competition and get to the final.”

“This year’s narrative is different. Dreams FC kicked out the defending Champions Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium in a competitive match.

“Kotoko also lost to the league leaders Aduana FC and it means they are not the best teams at the moment.

“Aduana FC also lost to King Faisal, so that it is it.

“We always work with the clubs that progress at the moment and we do not have expectations with who gets to the finals.”

“We only have to focus on the quality of the games and that is what we have now on our hands. The competition is about the best teams of the moment.

“It is what the competition is about. It is the MTN FA CUP, so we should be happy that we have surprises in the cup competitions.”

The semi finals will be hosted at the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in Abrankese on the weekend of May 13 and 14.
