The MTN/FA Cup Committee has embarked on a tour of selected media houses to showcase the coveted trophy to be contested by sworn rivals – Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
Chairman of the FA Cup Committee, Kurt Okraku, is leading the team, which is expected to visit the New Times Corporation (NTC), this morning at 11.am.
The purpose of the Trophy Tour is to heighten publicity ahead of the grand finale, slated for the Tamale Sports Stadium on October 29, this month.
It will be the first time the two teams face each other in the FA Cup since their last clash in 1990.
Meanwhile, the official mascot for the FA Cup competition was unveiled at the headquarters of the GFA on Tuesday.
The event, which is a novelty in Ghana football also “unmissable” announced as the official tag line for the final match.
According to Mr Okraku, the mascot known as “Obia Nye Obia” was chosen to convey a sense of enthusiasm to play football and excitement for the tournament with its colour depicting that of the title sponsors.
“This is a very important and unique ceremony and again it is part of history. This is the first time we are all seeing somebody in the name of Mr Obia Nye Obia”, Mr Okraku added.
He reiterated that the mascot will be used as a major component of the branding of the overall event, especially this year’s final at the Tamale Sports Stadium.
The Mascot is expected to take part in numerous activities in the run-up to the grand finale between Ghana’s biggest clubs who have not faced each other in the FA Cup final since 1990.
The Committee stated that they will outline the road map to the final match and the giant trophy’s journey to the Tamale stadium.
