Hearts of Oak, a Ghanaian behemoth, has won the Ghana Premier League for the 2020/21 season with a game to spare.
In matchday 33 of the domestic top-flight at the Accra Sports Stadium, the Rainbow Boys shared the spoils with City rivals, Liberty Professionals, to clinch the title that had eluded the club for so long.
The Scientific Soccer guys held Hearts of Oak to a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Before Liberty restored parity, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh scored the game’s first goal.
The last time the Phobians won the league title was in 2009 under Serbian trainer Kosta Papic.
The draw against the Scientific Soccer lads means Hearts of Oak have clinched the league title for the first time in 12-years despite having a game in hand.
They sit at the table with 63 points and the outcome of the last round of matches (matchday 34) will not change anything.
Hearts of Oak will travel to Sogakope to play West African Football Academy (WAFA) in the final round of matches of the Ghana Premier League.
