Jordan Anagblah Memorial Cup kicks off today

The much awaited Jordan Anagblah Memorial Cup tournament kicks off today (Saturday) in Accra with twelve centers ready to host 64 clubs for the entire duration of the tourney.

The tournament which is for only Division Two clubs will see 111 games played in all to see the winner.

With 64 clubs participating, the first round will see 32 clubs progressing to the next round which will also see 16 moving on to the knockout phase.

Centers to host the competition include Oyarifa, Police Depot, Alajo, Nania Park, Charity Park, Indafa, Okwawu, Aquinas, Nungua Town Park, Tema Stadium and Klagon.

The winner of the competition will be awarded with balls, a trophy and cash whiles the runners up will take home balls and cash.

The Opening Ceremony of the tournament will take place at the Legon Park with Blind Football setting the pace for the big games.

Coordinator of the event Eugene Jacquaye is highly optimistic the tournament will achieve the needed objective.

“This is a tournament for Division Two clubs to get the players in shape and also occupy the space as there is no activity for clubs in that division.

“Most of these players move directly from this division to play for clubs in Europe as well as the Division One and Premier Leagues in Ghana.

“So it’s important we also get them going especially with the NC Special Competition underway for Premier and DOL clubs,” he told FootballMadeInGhana.com

The tournament is expected to last for over a month.
