Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

As part of the ongoing transition and evolution of Ghana Beach Soccer, the Ghana FA hosted over twenty clubs in an online training program at the FA headquarters in Accra on Tuesday 6th October 2020.

The FIFA Connect training workshop is seen as an essential platform to equip Beach Soccer club officials with basic and requisite IT skills/ knowledge to allow them navigate the FIFA digital registration system via the GFA platform.

The Chairman of Ghana Beach Soccer Yaw Ampofo Ankrah and Committee members were amongst those present along with other executives at the event navigated by GFA Information Technology manager Mr Francis Adu.

The GFA Referees Manager Mr Alex Kotey also addressed the trainees and indicated the need for a beach soccer referees instructor in Ghana.

“As it stands, Ghana is yet to have a FIFA beach soccer referee instructor and the GFA is working around that. Indeed the FA is set to put out a public notice to invite new referees on board”.

It is expected that upon the successful completion of clubs registration, a road-map would be drawn in line with the GFA timetable for the Ghana Beach Soccer League to kick start.
