As part of their social responsibilities to the people of Ghana Viasat1, one of the leading television stations in Ghana, over the weekend supported a tournament dubbed ‘Peace United Football Tournament’. This amazing event took place at Akrade, a suburb of Akosombo in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
The sole aim of the tournament was to pick a winner to represent Ghana in a similar tournament in Oslo and Norway and in turn to welcome the Noble Peace Prize. For their prize, they will represent Ghana in Norway in October 2010 in an expense paid trip.
The tournament with sponsorship from Viasat1 saw the host, Right To Dream Academy (RTD) running out to win the tournament. For those who have never heard of RTD, it is the brainchild of Tom Vernom, a British citizen based in Ghana. His aim is to take Ghanaian sport to new heights and exciting levels of competiveness.
Miss Afi Dzakpasu, the newly appointed Public Relations Officer of Viasat1 said the station will hopefully sponsor the tournament yearly. The station is set to roll onto our screens in Ghana with two locally produced productions “Laugh a Minute” and “The One Show”.
