Opoku Ware won the boys division at the December Sprite Ball Championship.

Young enterprising Sports Journalist Kwaku Anoo-Kumi has hit out at football clubs in Ghana who have added the term “Sporting Clubs” to their profile for failing to live up to the tag.

He made the statement during an interview on morning sports television show “HeadStart” which airs on Ghana channel Kwese Free Sports.

With the upcoming Sprite Ball Championship in January 2018 gaining steam, the spotlight has been placed on the country’s youth future in the sport.

Deliberating on issues regarding the development of basketball in the youth to a professional level, Anno-Kumi took aim at Ghanaian football clubs registered as Sporting Clubs.

He opined clubs operating under the name have failed to live up to it since there are no franchises built around other sports disciplines.

Unlike football teams in Europe like Barcelona and Real Madrid who have established basketball teams, football clubs in the country have nothing to reflect its sporting status.

The Sprite Ball is Ghana’s biggest high school basketball competition and has been the bedrock of talent production in the country.
