Yaw SakyiRite Multimedia chief, Yaw Sakyi Afari, is promising an improved Sprite Ball Championship at next year’s finals in Accra.

The hugely popular basketball event among senior high schools will roll out between January 3 and 4 at the El-Wak sports stadium and the Aviation Social Centre in Accra.

Over twenty (20) high schools will once again come into the picture seeking to either cement their dominance or to cause a major upsets at next year’s finals.

With the numbers of participating schools nearing its full house, teams will know their adversaries and groups.

It will also be time not only for coaches and players, but for the thousands of anxious fans located in all corners of the country- to start the guesswork, fill in the tables and dream of victory.

Accra-based event company, Rite Multimedia, which has been at the centre of developing and promoting the game close to a decade, has promised another matchless organization of the next edition of the competition.

“We’re indeed bracing ourselves for the biggest high school basketball of the year and I can confirm to you that we’re very much ready,” Rite Multimedia boss Afari told BASKETBALLghana.com

“We have been preparing on the quite as usual and in the course of the weeks ahead people will get to know what is happening.

“We have done this over the years and for us it another platform to unearth new and emerging basketball talents for our country.

“The next edition promises to be bigger and better as we have improved yearly. We must commend Coca Cola Company, producers of sprite for their continuous support and believe the in the progress of the game in the country.

He added: We have a lot of goodies for players and fans and so for the thousands who will throng the venue, there will be lots in the offing for them.

“The dream is still on course and we believe it will not be too long that we see the huge benefits.

“Indeed some of our players have benefited immensely from many educational scholarships both home and abroad and there are more plans in the pipeline for talented players.

“This year’s package will be exceptional and so I will entreat fans to keep their fingers crossed.”

It’s too early to start bursting bubbles and crushing championship dreams, but there is no reset button for the next edition either.

The twenty-eight (28) schools have only added a series of twists and turns to their pre-season pursuits.

Some will enter the campaign with legitimate title plans. Others look poised to snap strings of fruitless regular seasons.

The race to the 2014 Sprite Ball championship stage has already started, and not in the way the participating teams imagined.
