The leadership of the country’s football met key internal and external stakeholders to explore the challenges faced by the game in recent times and how these could be resolved.
The outcome of the three-day brainstorming initiative led by the President of the GFA Kwesi Nyantakyi will be put forward to Congress for consideration to improve the game ahead of the start of the next football season.
The summit was under the theme, ‘Ghana Football: Stronger Partnerships for a Brighter Future’. The GFA Executive Committee will also seek to take advantage of recent changes and opportunities in world football to impact positively on the game in the country.
