As the days roll by, so has the tempo in the The Language Clinique (TLC) Cup 2010, which started last Saturday, at the Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC) Soccer Park at Kokomlemle in Accra.
The maiden edition of the competition, code named “Africa unity and youth empowerment,” got off to a flying start with great soccer skills from students of the TLC, Abelempke, in Accra last Saturday, seeking, among other things, to foster unity among francophone students in the country.
In all, 13 francophone African countries will vie for honours in the soccer fiesta, which started last weekend.
At stake is a giant trophy, medals, plus a mouthwatering GH¢20,000 for the winner, while the first runner-up will receive GH¢5,000, with other prizes like Most Valuable Player Award up for grabs.
According to the Director of TLC and the originator of the competition, Mr. Bonaventure Aguissi aka Castro, plans were far advanced to feature some of Africa’s ambassadors in a 40 minutes side attraction game in the grand finale on December 11 at the Ohene Djan Stadium.
The participating countries are Chad, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, Togo, Guinea, Burkina Faso, DR Congo, Gabon, Cameroun, Congo Brazzville, Guinea Conakry and Mali.
