The GFA President, Kurt Okraku has called on the various women’s national teams in a virtual meeting
Kurt Okraku spoke to the teams and assured them of the support and good plans of the FA for women’s football development.
The virtual meeting occurred between Friday and Monday. In attendance were the management committees of the Black Maidens, Black Princesses and Black Queens.
Speaking in the meeting, Kurt Okraku said;
“I will like our women to be visible in Ghana, dominant on the African continent and must be present at every Women’s World Cup. These are going to be the set target”
It will be recalled that the Black Queens produced a rather underwhelming performance in the last Women’s AFCON hosted in Ghana 2018.
Kurt Okraku assumed office as FA President in October 2019. He has put women’s football first as he sets out his agenda to ensure the development of that part of the game.
The Women’s league began in January 2020 and has since seen a lot of improvement, picking up from the momentum of the past Normalisation Committee tournament last year.
The unexpected suspension of football due to the COVID 19 has slowed the progress of the league but it is expected to pick up from where it left when football resumes soon.
