Twenty African football chiefs are in Accra for the Ghana Football Association’s commissioning of the Fifa Goal III Project on Wednesday.
The infrastructural base of the game over the past decade has attained new heights as the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, the football home of Ghana takes shape.
The presence of the top African FA bosses is a massive boost for Kwesi Nyantakyi’s campaign to be a Caf executive committee member.
Through FIFA’s funded Goal Projects, Ghana has successfully completed the Goal III Project, which is a newly built multi-purpose dining and conference facility plus kitchen at Prampram. The GFA complemented the funding for the project which cost $425,000.
The Fifa Goal Project is aimed at bridging the gap between the developed and advanced European countries and the under developed nations in Africa, Asia and South America to bring parity.
However, Fifa’s continuous assistance is set on certain criteria – prudent management, good governance and commitment to the realization of the targets.
Ghana has satisfied all the requirements and as the GFA commissions the facility Wednesday, which would be attended by some twenty federation Presidents in Africa, it is set for the next phase of development on the 100 acre land.
FIFA Development Officer in Charge of West Africa, Sampon Kablan says, the Ghana Football Association meets all the conditions to pursue the next phase of infrastructural development, the Fifa Goal IV project, the first by an African nation.
“The next thing is the Goal IV project. And why not, the GFA has shown through the successful work on all the other projects that it can apply for more.
“All the conditions are set for Ghana to do the Goal IV which is an academy for the game. It’s just a matter of the FA providing its quota to convince FIFA that of their commitment to development,” Sampon Kablan said.
Ghana’s development of the technical centre at Prampram was built with funding from the Goal I Project which was a grant of $400,000 whiles the funds for Goal II Project was invested in the House of Football – the headquarters of the Ghana Football Association in Accra.
