Medeama SC are the defending champions of the FA Cup

The Ghana FA’s FA Cup Committee is satisfied with its performance since the revival of the knockout competition in 2010.

The FA Cup had been in abeyance for 10 years before it was brought back to life four seasons ago – backed by the financial support of telecommunications giants MTN.

The competition has offered several thrills to Ghanaian football fans with lower division side Nania FC winning it on its return.

New Edubiase and Medeama SC have also taken turns to win the competition in the past two seasons.

And the FACC believes it has done a good enough job so far to solicit the continued support from all stakeholders.

“We brought a dead competition alive and you know how difficult that is,” a member of the FA Cup Committee Eddie Doku said during the Round of 32 draw on Tuesday.

“Only Jesus Christ has been able to do such a thing and so and we are happy with how far we have come.

"We will therefore be counting on your continued support to ensure that the competition keeps growing.”

The Round of 32 stage of this season's FA Cup competition will see participating clubs receive GHC 500 (about $211) worth of airtime from MTN with the adjudged MVP's given GHC 100 (about $42) worth of airtime.
