Founded 11 November 1911 Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club are Ghana’s oldest exisiting football club. The club motto is ‘Never say Die’ and the official club website has these profound words to say on the matter ..
"The motto “NEVER SAY DIE” reflects the art, science and reality that the Oak tree is very strong and tough in the forest and thus able to survive all kinds of weather conditions. Yes, as a human institution, the founding fathers were very much aware that there would be good and bad times at one stage or the other due to mortal failures, shortcomings and differences in opinion. They however never compromised on the spirit of love and unity that bonded them together to be able to ride the storms of life."
