Chairman of the FA who led the delegation to the palace, Mr Ewuntomah Joachim thanked the Bolewura for his support so far in their activities, and revealed the intentions of the Association to initiate a cup competition dubbed “Kutege Feso Cup” in of the honor the King
‘Kutege Feso’ is the chieftaincy title for the Bolewura which literally means the millet that has been transplanted by God, no amount of drought can kill it

He said his outfit will donate a trophy with inscriptions ‘Kutege Feso cup’ for the purpose of the intended tournament
The Bolewura tasked the football body to survey the area for an appropriate land for the construction of the pitch and says he will ensure the Association and the Bole Assembly work together to develop the land into a football park
“My Football Association Executive, kindly go round Bole, any land you deem fit for a befitting park, come and tell me so that I give you the go ahead for construction. I will see to it that the Bole District Assembly and the Football Association join hands to work on that land”, the Chief revealed.
He recounted how he and the overlord of the Gonjaland Traditional Council, Prof. Yagbonwura Tutumba Boresa l played various roles in the administration of Real Tamale United when the latter was secretary to the club years back
Bolewura chose Alhaji coach Zack, and a yet to be named sub chief to be the palace representatives for the FA meetings
