“We have been supporting this tournament from the first year of our operations and we will continue to support them because they are doing great work for our footballers, making them more recognised not just at the local level, but internationally.”
Cell Phone Shack will also be purchasing 1000 tickets that will be used for various promotions as a way of giving back to their valued customers according to CEO Low-Koan.
