According to Omar Bah Touray, the President of Dekally Sunu Chosan, all is set for the Saturday's and Sunday's grand combats.

"All are welcome to feel the taste of promoting culture through sports. We have been organising the events for a year now and it is attracting more and more attention.

"What we need is the sponsorship of the event to enable us improve the infrastructure, to make spectators enjoy their weekend better.

"We are organising the wrestling competition to promote mutual understanding, unity and peace through the culture of wrestling,” these were the words of Touray.

"We are in need of sponsorship to improve the wrestling to higher heights," he said.

He called on the cellular companies, banks and other business sectors to invest in wrestling by sponsoring the event.
