LCB 2nd edition of Corporate Soccer tournament takes off

The second edition of the LCB Worldwide Corporate Soccer tournament roared off over the weekend at the Tema Community 2 Mexico newly-con­structed Astro turf.

He continued that it was also aimed at improving the health of employees of participating compa­nies, adding that the continued stay in office without taking some time to exercise their bodies was likely to affect their health, thereby af­fecting productivity at their various places of work.

“I can tell you that the company which will emerge as the winner for the Tema zone will play the winner for the Accra zone in the grand finale so that we have a winner for LCB Worldwide Ghana 2023 winner,” Yaw King stated.
