FIFA and CAF set up liaison team for Ghana Football Association

World football governing body, FIFA and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) have, in consultation with Ghana government, appointed Ghanaian businessman Dr. Kofi Amoah and Ghana’s technical director Oti Akenteng to liaise with them on international competition issues.

The government of Ghana has taken steps to dissolve the Football Association after the country’s football community was hit by a massive bribery scandal. Many Ghanaians have raised concerns that the decision of the government may affect Ghana’s female U-20 side, the Black Princesses’ participation in the upcoming FIFA U-20 Female World Cup, hence the decision of FIFA and CAF to set up a liaison team.

The government of Ghana on one side and CAF and FIFA on the other side arrived at such a decision following a meeting that took place at the Home of FIFA in Zurich, Switzerland.

FIFA, in a letter to confirm the two-man liaison team, noted that “FIFA and CAF continue to closely monitor and assess relevant developments in relation to the current situation of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The letter further stressed that “the liaison team will remain in place until such time as a decision is reached on FIFA/CAF’s ongoing review process related to the situation at the GFA”.
