The fourth edition of the Stone-YFM Pool tourney is set to take off at five centres in Accra, organizers have revealed at the launch at the Accra Mall last Friday.

Organizers of the event, Y-FM, would be visiting a number of tertiary institutions in the country to register players.

All that the expected prospective participants will have to do is grab a bottle of Stone Strong Larger beer from a centre one wants to play and would be provided with rules of the competition.

At the end of the events in Accra and other parts of the country, the Garden City of Kumasi would host the grand finale on December 6, where defending champion Emmanuel Paintsil would be competing against 31 other players.

An attractive prize of GH¢2,000,  a trophy, ABL products and a Stone  branded pool table is at stake for the winner of this year' s event themed 'Shot for champions', while a brand new Samsung  phone is up for grabs for the first runner-up

Marketing Manager of Accra Brewery Limited James Boakye Sarfo said, 'The polo game is one of the platforms through which we engage with our cherished consumers, hence, our desire for supporting this annual event with our Stone Strong Lager, a beer full of flavour which delivers more taste and satisfaction.

'As part of our commitment of celebrating champions through POOL games, this year the event has been extended into several campuses and local pubs across the country and our total investment to this game has increased by 41% over last year.

'This year's event will be held in the Ashanti Region and I am happy to announce that the Champion will walk away with GH¢2,000 cash, a trophy, a branded pool table, and lots of souvenirs from Accra brewery,' he added.
