GFA to construct two training fields

The Ghana FA will construct two training pitches by the end of the year to help boost quality of play and prevent injuries.

This was revealed by its president, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The two pitches will be constructed in two of the most popular football playing cities of Accra and Kumasi as the GFA seeks to help government in its duty of developing sports infrastructure in the country.

According to Nyantakyi the association has plans in place to establish the training fields within months.

“The football association will be constructing two training fields specifically in Accra and Kumasi. It is not going to be a stadium, rather a training field before December 2015?, he said on Metro TV.

“It will be used by the female clubs and first and second division clubs for their league. We have nine playing centers now and they are not enough. The pressure on them have compelled them to depreciate. So we will do the two for now,” he added.

In another development, Mr. Nyantakyi has been honoured with a citation by Fly High Supporters Union in Ho.

The citation was presented to him by chairman of the supporters union Courage Deh-Zangah in the Volta regional capital during a working visit to interact and familiarize with football administrators in the region.

The honour was as a result of his commitments towards football development in the country and to congratulate him on his re-election as president of the Ghana Football Association for a third term.
