The President of the Ghana Football Association Mr Edwin Simeon Okraku over the weekend held marathon meetings with the Chairmen of the Regional Football Associations to discuss a number of issues affecting the FA and the regions.
The meeting held via zoom Conferencing was to closely bring the FA leadership to the regions, and the problems confronting them.
Amongst issues discussed included the FIFA COVID-19 relief funds allocated to the regions, the proposed amendments to the statutes which seeks to increase the number of representatives on the Congress and executive council by the regions, and the development of infrastructure at the local level.
The regional Chairmen asked the FA President to clarify the use of the monies allocated to them by the FA for the COVID-19 reliefs, the RFA asked if the money is to be shared amongst the clubs, or be used for development by the RFA’s themselves.
Our sources within the Football Association states the FA president assured the Regions of his unflinching support in finances and logistics, and was ready to make available resources to enhance their work.
The FA President also promised to help each of the 10 regions to contruct an astro turf pitch as part of the infrastructure projects earmarked to enhance regional Football growth.
