Other sporting activities include rope racing; bicycle ride competition and short relays for 100 meters.

Asked about the purposes of the Sunday match, he said, first of all, they are planning to “assemble as well-known district team ready always” and “trying to unite the two constituencies through sports”.

The match, and any other, he reveals will be used to “identify talents in Oyam and see how to market them to the outside world”.

“Creating community awareness advocating for parents to start investing in young children since many can get free education, get opportunities from big clubs in Europe. We intend to use this to keep redundant youth active so that their idle minds can be kept busy at all times.”
