Ghana to host Deaf Football Tourney June

The Deaf Association of Ghana will next month host the rest of the West African sub region in the 6th edition of the West Africa football tournament.

Ghana’s team won last year’s edition in Togo after they defeated Nigeria 3-1 in the final.

The event which will come off at the Baba Yara Sports stadium from June 24 to July 9 will see countries like Togo, Liberia, Benin, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger all battling for the ultimate.


However, deputy sports minister Vincent Oppong Asamoah wants financial support for the hosting of the tournament

“This deaf team gave us gold, I don’t remember the last time we even had gold in any of the GFA ranked sports yet when they come for sponsorship you give them.

"I am therefore using this opportunity to appeal to GNPC, banks, all other corporate bodies to come in and support. They need about GHC 500,000 to enable them host a successful event," he told Starr Sports.
