FIFA agrees to work with government to reshape football in Ghana

A meeting between FIFA and government dated 29 June has instituted a 2-man liaison team to run football in Ghana.

Government of Ghana following the Anas expose’ that caught several football and match officials on camera receiving monies suspected to be bribes, suspended all football activities in the country as part of its attempt to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

To avoid any ban from FIFA over government interference in football matters, the Ministry for Youth and Sports has been engaging with FIFA to come up with a road map to restore football in Ghana, but without the direct involvement of the GFA under whose watch the image of the beautiful game has been brought into disrepute.


Two prominent men namely Dr. Kofi Amoah and Oti Akenten, head and member of the liaison team, respectively have been appointed to serve as liaison officers to oversee football activities in Ghana until things come back to normal.

Below is the full details of the agreement between Ghana government and FIFA after a meeting dated 29 June in Zurich, Switzerland.
