Ghana Football Association Offers Training Facility To Gov’t For Use As Isolation Centre

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has offered the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, a training facility in Prampram to the Government of Ghana to use as an isolation centre in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Centre of Excellence, which was built in 2003 to accommodate national football teams, has space to house more than 1000 people. This, in the wisdom of the Executive Council, is the GFA’s contribution to the fight against COVID-19.

“Through our Medical Committee, we have gotten in touch with the authorities to make them aware that our facility at Prampram is available for use,” the General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo said.

“The Centre of Excellence is spacious and we think, the facility can be of great help to government in this challenging time,” he added.

The GFA has been running campaigns across platforms to create awareness since the first COVID-19 case was reported in Ghana. The GFA has also suspended all football competitions as a precautionary measure.

When approved, the Centre could serve patients from Greater Accra, Eastern and Volta regions, taking into consideration its strategic location.
