The first President's Cup will be played this year between two President XV teams of the rugby nations on 27 April in Accra-Ghana and on 4 May in Lagos-Nigeria.
The 2019 President's Cup will also form part of the preparations of Ghana and Nigeria for the 2019 Rugby Africa Silver Cup that is scheduled to take place in Nigeria between Ghana, Nigeria, Botswana and Madagascar from 6 June 2019 to 17 June 2019.
According to Mensah, a principle decision was reached between himself and Kelechi Mbagwu in Marrakech-Morocco during the 13th General Assembly of Rugby Africa to kickstart possible wider international cooperation with the President's Cup.
"Everybody knows that the tournament structure of Rugby Africa falls short to give Rugby nations in Africa enough match exposure to 'breed' the next Rugby World Cup participants besides for South Africa and Namibia. Even Rugby Africa has asked Members to seriously look at friendly internationals between regional states," Mensah said.
