Organizers of the All Star Festival have announced the host venue for the 2024 edition scheduled in June.

The Business Africa Consulting Group Limited (The BAC Group) has chosen Tamale, a unique cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural heritage and enviable history of producing several football icons across players, administrators and investors, as the next host of the off-season football event.

Tamale has groomed many Ghanaian football icons who have made their mark in this city and across Africa. Three-time African player of the year, Abedi Ayew ‘Pele’, Mohammed Gago, Alhassan Abu, and Gbadamosie are some of the stars Tamale has produced.

The All Star Festival is an event that seeks to harmonize football and culture in various parts of the country. Many international football icons as well as local footballers come together to exhibit their football skills while promoting the Ghanaian culture.

It is aimed at bridging the physical gap between these international stars, local footballers and the fans. As a result, the All Star Festival takes the stars to communities that they ordinarily wouldn’t go.

Preparations are already underway to ensure a successful organization of the 3rd edition of the All Star Festival in Tamale.

Management of The BAC Group has paid a courtesy call on all the major stakeholders in the Northern region’s capital.

These stakeholders include the chiefs and leaders of Tamale, the Northern Regional Football Association (RFA) chairman, the media, and the managers of the Tamale Sports Stadium.

The Chairman of the Northern Regional Football Association (NRFA), Mr. Alhaji Abu Hassan Rhyzo, shared his excitement about Tamale being the host city for the 2024 All Star Festival. “I am excited to announce that tamale will be the center of African football. Tamale is all set to host the continent’s official off-season football gathering… it is a forum that fosters deep connection between our stars and then the community that supports their trade” – Mr. Alhaji A. H. Rhyzo.
