Accra Hearts of Oak made gate proceeds of GH¢450,000 from their Premier League clash against rivals Asante Kotoko in Accra on Monday.

The amount is believed to be the highest raked in by any club in the country in a league game at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The amount is, however, subject to deductions by the National Sports Authority, VAT and 10% of the gross amount to the Ghana Football Association.

Hearts sold all 38,000 tickets with the most expensive ones selling for GH¢100 and the cheapest going for GH¢ 10 which saw the stadium filled to a 98% capacity.

Hearts lost 1-0 to Kotoko in the Week 10 fixture thanks an own goal from goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama.
