GFA to hold stakeholders meeting

nyantakyiThe Ghana Football Association will hold a stakeholders meeting on 30th March, 2015 for the FIFA Regulations on Working with Intermediaries which will supersede the FIFA Players’ Agents Regulations.

With the coming into force of the FIFA Regulations on Working with the Intermediaries, the previous Player Agent licensing system shall be abandoned and all existing licences issued by the GFA will lose its validity with immediate effect on 1st April, 2015 and shall be returned to the GFA.

To ensure that all members of the GFA understand the new regulations and ensure compliance, stakeholders who will attend the meeting at the GFA Conference room will be taken through the new FIFA Regulations.

The new FIFA Regulations on working with Intermediaries was approved by the FIFA Executive Committee on 21st March, 2014 at its meeting at Zurich. Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Premier League Board Chairman, Welbeck Abra Appiah has said he expects GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi to be allowed to serve his term of office until he has exhausted his opportunities to contest for the top job at the nation’s soccer governing body, according to the GFA Statutes.

“Randy Abbey did very well while he was on the (Black Stars) management committee with Kwesi Nyantakyi and Fred Pappoe. But to me, Kwesi must finish his term of office and when he is no longer interested in contesting, then we talk about Randy should step in so we must be patient,” Abrah Appiah told Happy FM.

Randy Abbey recently rejected an appointment from Kwesi Nyantakyi to become the Chairman of the Black Queens management committee, which led to claims in the local sports media that he was rather aiming at the post of GFA Boss.

Randy Abbey has not publicly declared that he is interested in the Ghana FA Presidency with the Elections to be held later this year.
