On Sunday October 6th, 2019, The Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment (MLSE) collaborated with Ghanalinx Group to organize the 2nd Annual Ghana Heritage Night at the BMO Fields. The event took place on the final and decisive last game of the regular season game of Toronto F C and Columbus Crew S C. Toronto FC won the game 1-0 thanks to Alejandro Pozuelo’s free-kick goal.
Gabe Odartei, the CEO of Ghanalinx Media along with MC Ebone and Mr. Kingsley Eyiah from the GCAO ( Homework Club), organized some Ghanaians youths to participate in the opening ceremony before the game. The youths were provided with some refreshments and giveaways for their participation.
Many youths and their families came to watch the game and also got an opportunity to meet some of the Ghanaian players from the Columbus team. Ghanaian international players, Harrison Afful, Jonathan Mensah and David Accam took pictures and signed autographs with their fans after the game.
Look out for the next Ghana Heritage experience in 2020. To sponsor a youth or to register your children for this annual Ghana Heritage Night at BMO, email firstname.lastname@example.org
