Suspension of the 2020 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship has officially lasted exactly a week.
The competition was suspended in the wake of the Corona Virus outbreak that has affected a host of sporting activities in the world.
In Ghana, competitions like the Accra Basketball League and GSP Basketball League have also been affected; there is a one month ban on all social gatherings in the country.
As such, this year’s version of Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball tournament has been put on hold until the ban comes to an end and further takes place.
UPAC Organizers Rite Sports Limited made the announcement after consulting heads of participating institutions and sponsors MTN, CAL Bank and Decathlon.
32 teams representing institutions in the nations are competing in the tournament across eight zones with zonal winners progressing to the national level.
The national tournament was set to be played between April 16 and April 18 in Accra but that is in line to be changed. Prior to the suspension Radford University College and Takoradi Technical University had qualified from Zone One and Zone Two respectively.
