Selected officials and players of English Premier League club, West Ham, will be in Ghana in October for a two-day training programme with Ghanaian counterparts.
The West Ham team will share their expertise with the 20 Ghana Premier League coaches at a workshop at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on October 6, where they will be exposed to some modern football trends.
This will be preceded by a sports clinic at the Lizzy Sports Complex in East Legon on October 5, where coaches and footballers will be taken through practical fundamentals of football.
Deputy Captain of the Black Stars, Dede Ayew, who plies his trade with the English outfit, would be at the centre of the historic visit to Ghana.
Ayew will spend time with a cross-section of fans at the Betway Store in Adabraka and the Accra Mall on October 5 and 6, respectively.
Fans will get the opportunity to take photographs with him and get his autograph while West Ham fans will also receive coveted prizes from their sports idol and stand the chance to win an ultimate prize.
The visit is also aimed at showing solidarity to the club’s Ghanaian fan base and establishing a strong foothold in the minds and hearts of the fans as part of its outreach programme to Africa.
