Team: Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club
Founded: 11th November, 1911
Motto: Never Say Die Until The Bones Are Rotten
Coach: Kim Grant
Accra Hearts of Oak SC also known as Hearts of oak or Hearts is the oldest football club in Ghana. The Phobians have made a name for themselves on the African terrain and remain as one of the biggest clubs in Africa to date. The club’s unprecedented treble in 2000, under the tutelage of Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio, remains the biggest moment in the club’s 107 year history.
The famous 64 Battalion which dominated the local and African terrain in the late ’90s and early 2000s, made a clean sweep of titles in Ghana and Africa, winning the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and the CAF Champions League in 2000, followed by the CAF Super Cup in 2001. The 64 Battalion made up of players such as Goalkeeper Sammy Adjei, Eben Dida Armah, Jacob Nettey, Amankwah Mireku, Ishmael Addo remain in the hearts of all Phobians……
Hearts over the years have evolved and become pioneers in this digital age. From player signing announcements to the unveiling of new jerseys, the Phobians have blazed the path in connecting with the fans on social media. The club signed a mega contract with kit manufacturer Umbro and currently have one of the best designed kits in the country.
With the eminent return of the GPL, the Phobians have kicked preparations up a notch and look ready to compete again after their semifinal defeat to arch rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko in the NC Special Competition. Coach Kim Grant and his charges will certainly be ready to dominate Ghana and Africa once football in Ghana resumes in earnest.

Be quiet and don’t be silly,
We are the famous Hearts of Oak
We never say die!!!
Phobia Never Say Die Until the Bones are Rotten!!!!!!
