The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is expecting to receive 100 footballs from the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF).
The country’s football governing body has today confirmed the news while indicating that the move by CAF is to support member Associations via the FIFA Forward program.
“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”, a letter from the continent’s football governing body to the GFA said on Thursday, August 13, 2020.
The distributions of the 100 footballs are scheduled over two batches (end of August and end of September).
According to the Ghana FA, the footballs from CAF will be used by the national teams of the Association.
The West African country’s football governing body in a bid to support the development of the sport in the country has already announced a 5,000-football sponsorship deal for the male competitions including the Ghana Premier League, Division One League, and the FA Cup for the next three seasons.
