The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is looking to invest $280,000 into competitions via the provision of mechanized boreholes at game centres across the country.
According to the GFA, the project will be used to develop Premier League, Division One League, Women’s Premier League and Game centres of Regional Football Associations and will be funded by the FIFA Forward 1.0 programme.
This was announced by GFA President Kurt Okraku during a working visit to the Tamale Stadium Annex and the Tamale Kaladan Park on Thursday, 6th August 2020.
Kurt also inspected a 6.5-acre land secured by the federation at Wintogo, Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region for the construction of an astroturf pitch, as the GFA looks to use part of the funds from the FIFA Forward 1.0 programme to construct 2 astroturfs (one at Prampram and the other at Bolgatanga).
The land, which was donated by Headmaster of the Bolgatanga Senior High School, Mr Ababu Afelibik, has been duly registered in the name of the Ghana Football Association.
