4th Ramadan Cup launched

The fourth edition of the annual Sheikh Sharubutu Ramadan Cup has been launched in Accra.


The competition, named after the National Chief Imam and organised under his auspices, brings Zongo communities together to compete in a football competition as part of social events to mark the end of Ramadan.


Launching the event, the coordinator of the tournament, Tamimu Issah, revealed that 16 Zongo communities will participate in this year’s edition set for June 23, 2018.


The tournament coordinator, Tamimu Issah, said the tournament has achieved its objectives of bringing Zongo communities together through football, as well as promoting friendship, peace, and discipline.


“The competition has been named after a national icon, the Chief Imam, and he represents the very objectives of the competition which are peace, togetherness, discipline, and humility. From a humble beginning of just eight communities which took part in the inaugural edition, the competition has grown rapidly with 16 communities now involved. We are happy with the progress and we are happy with the achieved our objectives.”


A representative of the National Chief Imam, Dr Inusah Osman, said the Chief Imam was thrilled by the continuous progress of the tournament and urged both organisers and participants to continue to work hard to make the tournament better.


An official of The Royal Bank, who has been supporting the event since 2016, said the support offered by the bank is in line with the vision of its late founder, Alhaji Dr Adamu Idrissu who Okayed the bank’s inaugural support for the bank in 2016.
