Adu Gyamfi Senior High School, 2017  Ashanti Regional Senior High School Football champions, will host Worldwide Mission School, winners of the 2017 Liberian National High School Football gala.

The high school football match is scheduled for Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

It will provide participating teams opportunity to interact and socialise, share experiences as well as bond with each other.

The 20-man Liberian delegation will depart for Ghana on Friday, April 27.

It will include players, sports director and coach (from Worldwide Mission School), representatives from the Ministries of Education and Youth and Sports, as well as the organising committee of National High School Sports.

The two participating teams are competing for a cash prize of US$7,000, a trophy and 30 medals.

The National High School Sports uses sport as a platform to reduce youth illiteracy and to boost school enrolment.

The first-ever high school football and kickball championship in Nigeria in 2017 featured over 200 Ministry of Education-sanctioned high schools across Liberia.

Aside the remarkable performance of Adu Gyamfi Senior High School in most sporting activities, the Boys’ Soccer Competition has been the banner over the last decade.

The school has emerged champions for five times, winning the competition in three successive years from 2011 to 2013 as well as 2015 and 2017.

They were first runners-up in 2009 and 2010 and 2nd runners-up in 2015 and were quarter-finalists in 2016.
