The Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon Isaac Asiamah, Wednesday afternoon led a team comprising leaders of the Ghana League Clubs Association and the National Sports Authority to present the trophy for Sunday’s President’s Cup match to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia at the Flagstaff House.
The President’s Cup was instituted in 2003 by the Ghana Football Association to honour the President.
This year’s game is between traditional giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak and takes place at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday July 2, 2017.
In a brief remark, Vice President Bawumia urged the players to view the match as one to honour the nation, as the President is the embodiment of the country.
“I expect the match to be as exciting as we have always seen them to be. ‘Ebe ye butubutu’ in a friendly way,” he quipped.
