The top 8 tournament is one of a series of activities we have lined up in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and the players are getting points for rankings on who makes the national team,” Mr. Afadzinu told Allsports.com.gh exclusively.
He continued: “We hope to organize 3 or more tournaments including international competitions with neighbouring countries and we believe our level of exposure and consistency for international competitions should be high.”
