The Organising Committee of the Annual Shaikh Sharubutu Ramadan Cup has rescheduled this year's edition to next weekend Saturday June 15th.

The 5th edition was scheduled to be held this Saturday June 8 at the Wembley Park, in Kotobabi, Accra, but organisers have now rescheduled it due to the ban on noise-making as a result of Homowo.

Coordinator of the tournament, Tamimu Issah said the postponement is to respect the ban during the Eid celebrations..

"The Ramadan Cup is a sports festival, which also plays music at the background through the competition, and we realised that our public address and sound system will violate the Homowo ban on noise making within our host community so it is important for us to respect the ban and reschedule it," said Tamimu Issah.

"We peacefully co exist in these communities so it is important to continue to show mutual respect to each other.

The Ramadan Cup is named after a renowned peace advocate, so we don't want to do anything that would lead to confusion."
