Hon. Kebba K. Barrow, sponsor of the tournament in his remarks said, he sponsors football tournaments to help young people have a living as well as create job opportunities for them.

He added that, the tournaments are also geared towards ensuring social cohesion and improve togetherness in communities within his constituency.

“Young people are the bedrock of our communities and we want to encourage them to be more reliant and be able to do things on their own without depending on their parents and extended families,” he went on.

He urged the committee to ensure any team that wins the trophy for three consecutive times takes and owns it.

Meanwhile, the 2022 Farato knockout final is slated for tomorrow, Saturday at the Farato Football Field at 4.30 pm.

The much-awaited final will feature Duwa Jabbi Properties FC against Nema United Community FC.
