Last Saturday, 24 September, 2022, The annual Kasoa MP's Cup tournament kicked off as thousands of enthusiastic fans filled the Kasoa-Akweley AstroTurf for the opening ceremony.
The tournament, which is under the auspices of the MP for Awutu Senya East Constituency, features 32 teams representing all the areas in the Awutu Senya East constituency.
As the Member of Parliament for the area, Hon Hawa Koomson strongly believe that when the energies of the youth are properly directed to a good course, the entire society benefit positively.
It is against this background that, in 2021, she instituted a yearly football tournament that will seek to bring together almost all the youth grouping in her beloved constituency to compete for glory.
In doing so, according to her opinion aside reducing crimes, which unjustifiably, the Awutu Senya East constituency has become known of, it will also help to unearth the abundant talents amongst the youth in the constituency.
"Football has always been a tool for promoting togetherness, peace, tolerance and in most cases as an avenue for escaping poverty and I do not intend to miss out on any of these good attributes for the good people of Awutu Senya East that I am honored to be serving" Hawa Koomson said.
