New Vit’s instant Noodles, “the noodles that dance in your mouth” has reached an agreement with the organizers, Goldstar Consult as the main title sponsor. The event is now known as Vit’s Stars Soccer Fiesta Reloaded.
It is scheduled to take place at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on June 24, 2012 in Kumasi and expected to out stage last year’s edition. The Celebrities would use the event to also champion a Peaceful campaign before, during and after this December general elections.
The choice of the venue is to let the fans of Kumasi have the feel and fun attached to the worthy cause since part of the funds accrued will be channelled to support Charity in Kumasi as has been the case for Accra fans since its inception.
Kanu Nwankwo has confirmed his participation in this year’s Stars Soccer Fiesta reloaded following an invitation by John Paintsil and Asamoah Gyan. Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is expected to grace the occasion after attending to pressing family issues.
Lots of activities has been planned to climax for the event. The Accra Media team will lock horns with their Kumasi counterparts. The main match will be against the Black Stars of Ghana versus the Ghanaian celebrities, which is made up of movie and music stars.
Before the main game, there will be musical performances which will continue after the match. After there will be a dinner and after party at Golden Tulip for former stars who had supported the match over the years to be awarded.
There will be a ROAD SHOW FROM ACCRA TO KUMASI Saturday 23rd June from 9am to 4pm. The Stars will parade their cars led by a police escort from Accra through Koforidua, Nkawkaw, Konongo Ejisu where there will be 15 minutes stop over for autographs and pictures with fans enroute to Kumasi.
