Hockey fans in the Accra Metropolis will have a lot to cheer about at the Theodosia Okoh Hockey Stadium today when the Africa Cup for Club Championships (ACCC) bully off with all male and female Ghanaian clubs opening their campaigns.

Main attraction

Top on the list will be the encounter between Ghana Police Service men and Eastern Company from Egypt at 11:15 a.m. The match will be full of fireworks, considering the fact that Eastern Company have  always been a thorn in the flesh of their Ghanaian counterparts.

At 3:45p.m, the male team of Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), who are giants at both the local and continental level, will lock horns with little-known Egyptian side, Tairat.

However, Ghana Army will be the first male team to test their strength at 7:45a.m. when they clash with Police Machine from Nigeria in another interesting duel.

At 9:30a.m, the female side of GRA will welcome Plateau Queens in a match which favours the Ghanaians. Two hours later, the female team of Ghana Police Service will also open their campaign against Delta Queens of Nigeria in a match that can go either way.

The opening game will be between Zamalek of Egypt and Kenya’s Wazalendo at 6a.m. today.
