Each team would also receive GH¢500 on every match day from organisers, while jerseys and footballs were also presented to the various teams ahead of the competition.

Speaking at the launch of the event, Abafum Akutsotse, Nii Oten Granaky I, who was the Chairman of the occasion, pledged support for the event and expressed appreciation to McDan for coming on board to support this year’s event.

As a past footballer, he urged the youth to take the competition seriously as it serves as a platform for them to exhibit their talents.

Marketing Manager at McDan Group of Companies, Obodai Sai, is optimistic that talents would be discovered after the competition and pledged continuous support for the competition.

Chairman of the organising committee, Attah Adjetey, added that the event would be used to identify and nurture talents and also foster unity among the Ga-Adangmes.
