32 teams to participate in Betway gala
The 2019 Betway Easter football gala tournament is scheduled for Saturday.
It will be played simultaneously across four locations in the Greater Accra, Western and Eastern regions.
The tournament will feature 32 teams from Nungua and Pokuase in the Greater Accra Region, Akim Oda in the Eastern Region and Takoradi in the Western Region.
Each region will field eight community football teams.
The teams will compete in several games over the one-day tournament with the top three placed teams in each region sharing a total prize purse of GH¢ 5,000.
The champions of each region will walk away with GH¢ 2,500.
In addition to the action on the field, fans will be entertained off the field with table tennis, football and other exciting games.
Country Manager of Betway Ghana, Rex Danquah Jnr. said “since our inception, we have been committed to sports development in the country and that’s just what we are doing.”
“We are looking forward to using this competition as a tool to bring people within our communities together during the festive season as well as to give them an opportunity to showcase their talent,“ he stressed.
The 2019 Easter gala will be the third sponsored by Betway in their continued drive to support sports development in Ghana.
Last year’s edition witnessed an impressive showcase of talents from communities in Accra, Kumasi, Cape Coast, Takoradi, and Sunyani with the Vipers from Cape Coast emerging as overall winners.
