Accra, Aug. 18, GNA- The Ghana Football Association (GFA), is set to receive 100 balls from the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
The move is part of efforts by the African Football governing body to support member Associations in times of the pandemic.
A letter from CAF and copied to the GFA on August 13 said “In light with CAF efforts to support its National Associations, CAF has the pleasure to inform you that it has been decided to provide 100 match balls to each Member Association.”
The 100 match balls are part of the FIFA Forward Program and the distribution is scheduled over two batches (end of August and end of September).
The 100 footballs from CAF would be used by the national teams of the Association.
It would be recalled that the GFA announced plans to support grassroots football with 6,000 balls through its FIFA Forward 1.0 programme.
The GFA also announced a 5,000-football sponsorship deal for the male competitions, the Ghana Premier League, Division One League and the FA Cup for the next three seasons.
