Ghana FA to develop pitches in all regions

The Ghana Football Association is liaising with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) to develop football pitches in all regional capitals in the next four years, Kwesi Nyantakyi, Chairman of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has hinted.

Such international standard pitches would help market the local league and minimize avoidable injuries, he said.

Mr Nyantakyi gave the hint when he paid a day’s working visit to the Volta Region to thank delegates, who renewed his mandate as President of the Association for the next four years.

He said the new pitches would have facilities such as water for pitch maintenance and charged regional executives of the Association to use those pitches to develop the local game.

Mr Nyantakyi also hinted that the Association might re-zone the Division one league to facilitate more regional representation.

He said the Association was also taking initiatives to improve women’s football in the country and called for help from stakeholders.

“We are working on reforms to improve football to make our fans and all stakeholders happy,” Mr Nyantakyi said. GNA
