8 Battle For Kantanka Cup


The much discussed ‘Kantanka Cup’ is set to take centre stage in the capital today at the La McDan Park as eight teams begin their conquest to annex the prestigious trophy.


The two-day football tournament is being organised to honour Apostle Prof. Emeritus Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, to mark his birthday this Thursday.

It is also to celebrate his exploits in the religious and scientific fields.


The tournament would witness the finest Ghanaian footballing academies including Great KOSA, Liberty Professionals Academy, Charity Stars Football Club, Desidero Football Academy, Kingdoko Babies Football Club, Dreams Babies, Jayash Soccer Academy and Attram De Visser Soccer Academy.


The format of the tournament will see the eight teams grouped into two groups for an all-play-all session, after which the two top winners will advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.


At stake will be a giant trophy for the ultimate winner together with medals and cash prizes for participants and outstanding players.


Apostle Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, regarded as one of the world’s greatest multi-dimensional scientists and technologists, would be the guest of honour for the tournament, with Ghana Football Association President Kurt Simeon Okraku expected to grace the event.
