Ghana FA To Use National Teams As Case Study To Convince Gov’t To Restart Football

Ghana FA Spokesperson, Henry Asante Twum says the FA has gotten the opportunity to convince the government on the resumption of football amid the coronavirus pandemic if its able to ensure that camping of the various national teams is done successfully.

The government has given the green light for the national junior women's team, the Black Princesses, Black Maidens and the men's U-17 team the Black Starlets to begin camping ahead of their respective qualifiers in September.

This is the first time the government has eased restrictions on football activities since March.

According to Henry Asante Twum, this is an opportunity for the FA to prove to the government that football can resume safely in the country if its able to ensure all the measures put in place for the national teams are executed without any problem.

“It is very important at this stage because the decision that came on Sunday from the President is a test case for the GFA. The government will be looking at how the GFA will go about this", he told Happy FM.

“Now the national teams have been given the green light to resume training, it lies on us to ensure things are done right so in the future when engaging government on the return of domestic football we can use the national teams as a case study”.

He added:” Safety protocols are very important around this time so the FA is considering a lot of things in terms of how they will be camping based on the directives from CAF.
