Kurt Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association, has pledged the association’s full support to Hasaacas Ladies, Ghana’s first members at the CAF Women’s Champions League.
Hasaacas Ladies were selected to represent Ghana in the inaugural edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League after winning the GFA Normalization Special Competition.
As part of its preparations for the inaugural tournament, Hasaacas Ladies’ leadership paid a courtesy call on the GFA to update the association on its preparations and solicit support for tournament plans.
The GFA’s leadership has responded by offering Hasaacas Ladies full support, also offering the Ghanaman Center of Excellence to the team to promote their camping and training sessions ahead of the tournament’s first round, which will be held in Ivory Coast.
“You may be assured that the GFA will provide you with the required assistance to help you succeed in this competition.”
“We do not mind if you use the Ghanaman Center of Excellence in Pampram to train your players prior to the tournament.”
President Simeon-Okraku said, “We have complete faith in you and can only wish you luck in the tournament.”
WHO IS GFA
The Ghana Football Association, headquartered in Accra, is the country’s governing body for association football. The association, which was established in 1957, was disbanded with “immediate effect” on June 7, 2018, according to Minister of Sport Isaac Kwame Asiamah, following the discovery of a corruption scandal.
