The record breaking event was part of activities to mark the grand opening of West Africa’s largest sports store – Decathlon Ghana at the Junction Mall where the company has acquired a 1,250 square foot space.
The three time African best player, Abedi Pele, said the Decathlon Sports store was the finest in Africa with affordable goods and every one should patronise.
He said, “Decathlon has brought Europe to Ghana, what am seeing there gives opportunity to our youth. If you look at the prices it give the opportunity to the youth and kids to afford.”
“Decathlon is giving us all the opportunity to do the sports we want to do. In Ghana we have only football that people are interested in, but this gives us a huge opportunity to do boxing, athletics, basketball and varieties of things,” said Abedi Pele who played mostly in France, home of Decathlon.
Decathlon is committed to making sports affordable for all and has launched the Sports for All Campaign (#sports4all), a campaign dedicated at encouraging every Ghanaian to pick up sports as a lifestyle.
