PRIDE OF the north, Real Tamale United (RTU) will lock horns with Kessben FC at the newly-constructed Tamale Sports Stadium tomorrow to test the facility.

The 20,000 capacity ultra-modern stadium built by government recently for the 26th MTN African Cup of Nations will host teams in Group C which comprises Tunisia, Senegal, South Africa and Angola.
