Bofoakwa Tano is a Ghanaian association football club based in Sunyani. The club is a member of the First Division and play at Coronation Park. They are a classic example of a yo-yo club, having been promoted or relegated ten times since 1967.


Bofoakwa were first promoted to the top division in 1967. Despite finishing second-bottom in their first season, and bottom in their second season, they avoided relegation due to league restructuring, and in 1970 they managed a 6th-place finish. The 1972 season saw the club finish as runners-up to Asante Kotoko, and third place was achieved in 1974 and 1975, the club also winning the SWAG Cup in the latter season.

The club returned to the second tier after finishing bottom in 1979. They were promoted back to the top flight in 1982, but were relegated again in 1985.

The club reappeared in the top division in 1989-90, by which time the league had switched to winter. They were relegated again in 1990-91, promoted back in 1994-95, relegated in 1996-97, promoted in 1997-98. In 1999 they finished third from bottom, but avoided another relegation by winning a play-off. However, they were relegated again in 2006-07.
