Dr. Azzam would be in Ghana from September 11-14, 2018, to supervise the growth of the sport.

A statement from the GCF said Dr. Azzam, who doubles as the President of the Egyptian Cycling Federation, would inspect the progress of preparations towards the upcoming Africa Para Championship, to be held early in December.

Dr. Azzam has been very instrumental in the growth of Ghana cycling and has ensured that the sport was re-admitted into the world body 10 years ago, after its dismemberment some years back.

It is the first time a top official of the body is visiting the country since the inception of the sport.

In another development, the Management of Dreams FC has reached an agreement to partner with a Finnish club saide Rovaniemen Palloseura.

The deal will see Dreams FC give transfer rights to Rovaniemen Palloseura in the Finnish territory.

The agreement has an exchange programme feature which will see staff of Dreams FC especially in the technical, administrative and media departments undergo internships at Rovaniemen Palloseura and vice versa.

There is also a possibility of the Dreams FC first team or any of its youth sides to Finland for football tournaments.–GNA
