Put together by Mr Eugene Jacquaye, a member of the Juvenile Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the tournament is to honour the memory of the late football administrator and Vice President of the GFA, who died nine years ago at the age of 55 years.
Speaking to Times Sports on the tournament, Mr Jacquaye said Mr Anagblah who was the chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association before his demise, was one selfless administrator who lived his life for football, especially at the juvenile level.
“His enormous contribution to the growth and development of football in the Greater Accra Region and for that matter Ghana as a whole, cannot go without celebrating, hence we’re putting together this tournament to honour him annually and highlight the good works he did for the sport.
“Mr Anagblah’s excellent work as the chairman of the Management Committee of the 2009 Black Satellites team saw Ghana winning the Under-20 World Cup that year, the only African country to do so till date,” he added.
He disclosed that the finals would be graced by some top brass of Ghana football as well as family members of the late soccer administrator.
