Kotoko have also been African champions twice and have won the FA Cup nine times.
In 2010, the International Football Federation of History and Statistics (IFFHS) named Kotoko the African Club of the Century.
Fans of the club have since been sending their best wishes to the Kumasi side on Twitter.
We’ve come a long way and it is time to set pace for others to follow. Happy birthday to the porcupine family.✊
