A look back at the Aaha Gold Cup

The Aaha Gold Cup, organized by Sahara Club Pokhara, definitely seems to have gone from strength to strength. This year saw the usual packed stands, but the tournament matured in other departments.

The media coverage was fantastic, including a special section in the highly popular international football news website Goal.com. There was a specially dedicated Aaha Gold Cup website which is one of the best Nepali sports websites I have come across so far. The photo gallery on the website is first class.The prize packages also seem to have gone-up a notch, including the player of the tournament winning a motorbike. The only major thing lacking with the tournament was an entertaining final match as Police slammed Army 5 - 0.
