Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council (EC) member, Samuel Anim Addo, has revealed in an interview with Happy FM that the GFA is keen on developing colts football in the country.
Anim Addo who serves on the GFA Juvenile Committee also stated that the decline of colts football in the country is due to the failure of colts clubs owners to adapt to modern ways of football administration.
“Colts football is still running in the country, together with the academy system. The problem is that most of the owners of colt’s football club did not adapt to the modern ways of football which the GFA is trying to work and change that narrative. Now football is a very lucrative business and to succeed you will need more sponsorship and investment which the FA is working on it”
He also indicated that under the current leadership of GFA President Kurt Okraku the GFA have taken a key interest in colts and juvenile football and as such allocated money from the FIFA COVID-19 relief fund to that level.
“We were just about to start the juvenile league before the COVID-19 hit us. The FA wanted to introduce the Juvenile FA Cup, Inter-Regional Championships and many others”.
