The Ghana Football Association will play host to a regional seminar for General Secretaries and Technical Directors next week to help improve the game.

Beginning Monday, the four-day round-table discussion committed to sharing ideas geared at improving the administrative and technical structure of the sport in Africa would also seek to keep participants from 17-member Associations abreast with FIFA’s development programmes and grand plan for football.

A ten-member FIFA team including Kablan J. Sampon, Diallo Souleymane, Regenass Thierry, Benezet Jean-Michel, Bruscoli Francesco, Valat Hélène, Stadelmann Nicole Béatrice, Malouche Belhassen, Mahjoub Khalil and Aloui Wissen would lead the seminar.

Ghana will be represented at the seminar by Emmanuel Gyimah and Francis Oti-Akenteng while other participants from the continent join in.

Course topics include the role of the Technical Director vis-à-vis the General Secretary, License+, Transfer Matching System, FAP + Goal, MA Extranet, CAF Coaching licenses workshop, Grassroot development and Youth football.

The Ghana Football Association would also make a presentation on the second day of the seminar which ends on Thursday, October 27.
