The competition kicks off on the 14th and 15th of May at the Madina AstroTurf Park.

Addressing the press, the Executive Chairman of the LOC Dr. Kwaku Ofosu-Asare explained the rationale for the competition.

“You would agree with me that our brothers and sisters from the Muslim communities play a very dominant role when it comes to sports in the country. Therefore, it would be an opportunity to give them a very good platform to display their talents so that those who stand out would be able to join Team Ghana,” he said.

The 8 Muslim Communities were strongly represented at the launch.
