With the league season starting across all league centers, the Theatre of Dreams at Dawu will be one center of attraction to host an unpredictable game.

It will be Dreams FC and newly promoted King Faisal FC doing battle for supremacy in their first ever encounter in a relatively "friendly" encounter.
This game gives a comprehensive definition to what connoisseur of the local game means by a side tipped to perform well in the league and that of one that will only have a mission to survive the league season.
The Theatre of Dreams have been a torrid ground for travelling side as Dreams FC have made it almost a fortress sobriquet when playing at the comfort of their home, making teams struggle to do anything meaningful when they visit.
Dreams FC have become a main stay in the league since making their debut in 2016 and will be looking forward to cementing their stay, this time, with a possibility of being counted among the best sides.
To achieve that, winning their opening encounter against King Faisal comes with a lot of importance attached to it as that will revive their nerves to having a better footing in the league.
Abdul Karim Zito is back as Dreams FC's first team coach assisted by Winfried Dormon fledged around by key members of the team like captain Patrick Arthur, Maxwell Arthur, Muntari Kamaheni, Eric Gawu facing his former side and Issahaku Abdullai.
Without so much of injury concerns, Karim Zito have a lot of options to select from from his squad to ensure victory goes his way.
Nonetheless, King Faisal come into the game with a lot of history at the Theatre of Dreams as they picked up a 2-2 draw game in 2002 against Dawu Youngsters in the league.
The last time the "In Shaa Allaahu" boys visited the Eastern Region was in 2006/7 season where they snatched a point against Power FC giving them a psychological advantage going into the game.
Having not had a solid but manageable preseason campaign due to the privation of team depth and managerial restructuring, King Faisal will have to rely on the experience of Michael Akuffo and Osman Bashiru on the field of play to get a result in the game.
The availability of Ibrahim Osman from Asante Kotoko upfront will spark some drive for King Faisal in this game.
Experienced gaffer Anthony Kommey will have a sweet toast of event as he takes his first competitive game in charge of King Faisal at Dawu which looks a propitious ground for him and his side.
