Ramadan Cup rescheduled to June 15

The Organising Committee of the Annual Sheikh Sharubutu Ramadan Cup has rescheduled this year's edition to next weekend, Saturday, June 15, 2019.

The fifth edition was scheduled to be held on Saturday, June 8 at the Wembley Park, in Kotobabi, Accra, but organisers have now rescheduled it due to the ban on noise-making in respect of the Homowo festival.

"The Ramadan Cup is a sports festival, which also plays music at the background through the competition, and we realised that our public address and sound system will violate the Homowo ban on noise making within our host community so it is important for us to respect the ban and reschedule it," the Coordinator of the tournament, Tamimu Issah said.

"We peacefully co-exist in these communities so it is important to continue to show mutual respect to each other. The Ramadan Cup is named after a renowned peace advocate, so we don't want to do anything that would lead to confusion".
