South Korean survival drama series, Squid Game has become a pop culture phenomenon since it premiered.
All over social media, the iconic images from the nine-episode thriller have become used as references in all kinds of discussions.
Ghana Premier League giants, Asante Kotoko have been quick to capitalise on the global trend as well.
In a recent tweet, Kotoko, who return to the Baba Yara Stadium for a home game for the first time in almost two years, shared a brilliant Squid Game-inspired artwork.
The graphic features the familiar Squid Game colours of pink and white, with similar-looking fonts.
An edit of squad members, Isaac Oppong and Richmond Lamptey in the iconic clothes of the Game’s participants was the icing on the cake.
After 1️⃣ year, 8️⃣ months and 2️⃣3️⃣days, we return to our favourite Baba Yara Stadium🏟 against Bechem United on Sunday!!🔥

Kotoko face Bechem United on Sunday, November 7 in their first match at the stadium since it was closed down for maintenance work in 2020.
Since then the Kumasi club have had to play their home games at the Accra Sports Stadium, and the Len Clay Stadium at the end of the previous campaign.
The Porcupine Warriors will be looking to build on an impressive 3-1 comeback win in their season opener against Dreams FC.
