The side from the Volta Region were crowned kings of club beach soccer in Ghana


The maiden edition of the Calbank Super League was claimed by the Mighty Warriors, who become the beach soccer champions of Ghana.

They achieved this title with a clinical demonstration of beach soccer artistry against their final opponents, Marine Stars from the Central Region.

The Warriors put ten goals past their fellow finalists to take the crown in Cape Coast, which provided the perfect setting for a thrilling climax to the first edition of the CalBank Super League.

The regional tour which kicked off six weeks previously in the Western Region, and witnessed record fan attendance week after week, especially on the day of the final.

Pre-tournament favourites and recently crowned African Club Champions, Sunset Sports beat Accra-based Layoca Beach Soccer Club 5-2 to claim bronze.

The Warriors took home a cash prize of GH¢3,500 from CalBank, gold medals and an assortment of CalBank souvenirs, following their record-breaking feat against Marine Stars.

The runners-up also took home GH¢2,500, silver medals and CalBank souvenirs.

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) award went to Alfred Torsu of Mighty Warriors, who stood out as the best of the entire league tour. The Best Goalkeeper award was taken by Robert Nyadedor, also of Mighty Warriors, whilst Theophilus Abaidoo of Marine Stars and Eugene Dekpey of Mighty Warriors finished joint-Top Scorers with seven goals each.

The President of the Ghana Beach Soccer, Yaw Ampofo Ankrah, saluted the loyal and consistent investment of CalBank over the years, describing it as a “priceless contribution to national development.”

“We are very grateful to CalBank and also focused on the task of complimenting football development in the country.”
