Ghana would play Nigeria in an International Polo match at the Accra Polo Grounds onÂ Saturday, 2 October.
Mr Michael Mahama, captain of the Accra Polo Club, who disclosed this to GNA Sports inÂ Accra on Monday, said the competition formed part of activities marking the 50thÂ anniversary of Nigeriaâ€™s Independence.
Mahama said the competition, which is an annual event, will be sponsored by PHC MotorsÂ Limited and Trassaco Limited. He said some of the players expected to feature for GhanaÂ include Jamil Ibrahim, Sulemana Iddrisu, Eric Gene and Harold Awuah Darko.
The junior teams of both sides would play a curtain raiser match before the main event.
Mr Mahama called on the Ghanaian sporting public to rally around the team to enable themÂ beat their Nigerian counterparts. Last year Nigeria won the competition’s trophy but heÂ promised that they would win this year.
He, however, called on corporate bodies to help develop the sport in the continent.
