The Football Federation of Belize (FFB) and Asante Kotoko inked the contract on Friday.
Between November 15 and November 30, a Ghanaian club will travel to Belize to play two international friendlies against the Jaguars.
The agreement, according to the FFB, is crucial for both the sport in Belize and offers a rare opportunity for tourism and cultural interchange between the two countries. The current Ghana Premier League champion is Asante Kotoko.
The Football Federation of Belize, a member of the Central American Football Union of CONCACAF, is in charge of the Belize national football team, which plays for Belize internationally.
Belize has never qualified for a FIFA World Cup competition, although in 2013 the country did qualify for a CONCACAF Gold Cup competition. Unfortunately, they were eliminated in the group round.
Eric Bekoe, a former Asante Kotoko striker, has heaped admiration on the tenacious winger Isaac Oppong and predicted that he will soar higher in his career.
The youthful player, who struggled in the 2021/22 season owing to injury setbacks, scored a late winner for the Porcupine Warriors to signify his return to full fitness.
Kotoko secured a crucial victory in the first leg of the CAF Champions League preliminary stage when Isaac Oppong found space in the area and buried a goal at the very end.
The former Ghana Premier League goal king predicted Isaac Oppong will succeed given his abilities in an interview with Sunyani-based Union FM.
He can read and analyze games, which shows that he is a smart player.
If you observe how he scores goals, all he does is spin the ball in a small amount of space.
"Looking at the goals he scores, such goals require strikers who are snipers"
Isaac Oppong is a revelation and, depending on how Asante Kotoko manages him, a dream player.
"I am happy of him, he's a young man," I said. "It takes a player with a high game to be able to make decisions inside a confined or limited space in a game."
He needs to maintain his focus in order to avoid being complacent and to be able to perform when called upon.
