The headline sponsor of the Ghana Beach Soccer league, CAL Bank is set to unveil the maiden edition of the Beach Soccer Super Cup.
The tournament which is billed to take place in November will be played over the course of 3 weekends with Accra and Takoradi confirmed as the host cities.
According to Beach Soccer Coordinator Nana Poku Amankwah, a total of 16 teams will participate in the tournament.
The Western, Volta, Greater Accra regions would present 6 teams each with Central region chipping in the remaining 4 teams to chase for honours.
The CAL Bank tournament forms part of long term plans by wholly Ghanaian owned Bank to reignite the game of beach soccer in the country.
The head of Marketing at CAL Bank, Kofi Siabi has indicated that the financial institution remains resolutely behind the development and promotion of emerging sports such a beach soccer.
He confirmed that a media launch would be held to furnish all stakeholders with full details of CAL Bank’s sponsorship package.
This new development is a massive boost to the sport following a series of setbacks including missing out on Egypt 2018 slated for Sharm El Sheikh in December.
Ghana will not present a team at the next Beach Soccer Afcon due to the inability of the disbanded GFA to meet a CAF deadline for the Black Sharks participation.
The Sharks are currently ranked 9th in Africa by CAF and 69th by FIFA.
