This year’s edition will have Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA-Takoradi) and Ghana Technology University College (GTUC-Takoradi) play UPAC games for the first time.
The two teams have been drawn alongside University of Mines and Technology (UMAT) and Takoradi Technical University in Zone 2 of the 2018 UPAC Championship.
Zonal games will be played at Takoradi Technical’s Court on Friday March 9 with just one qualification spot available.
Only zonal winners progress to the next round which will take place in Ghana’s capital Accra in April; the knockout round will determine which team wins this year’s tournament.
Takoradi Technical has participated in UPAC since the competition commenced in 2011; this year’s competition is the fifth edition.
The team’s best performance was in 2016 when Takoradi placed fourth; All Nations University College is the first team to qualify to the quarterfinals in this year’s competition.
