Six teams are taking part in a festival of rugby league at the University of Ghana which it is hoped will drive participation numbers and provide the basis for a national team.

Akuafo Hall, Commonwealth Hall, Legon Hall, Mensah Sarbah Hall, African Union and International Students’ Hostel will play each other once over three days of competition culminating with the champions being crowned on Saturday at the university’s Athletic Oval.

The tournament is organized by the University of Ghana Sports Directorate alongside Titans Sporting Club based at the campus which is keen to promote growing interest in rugby league.

RL Federation of Ghana president Kareem Captan said: “We are looking forward to a fun and competitive week ahead with rugby league making its debut in the annual Inter-Halls Games of the University of Ghana. With six teams taking part, the event is anticipated to introduce the sport to a new audience and thrill spectators and players alike.”
