After 10 years of the official introduction as a sport discipline in Ghana, Beach Soccer has been accepted as a member by the Ghana Football Association.
The historic breakthrough for beach soccer came at the GFA Extraordinary Congress held in Accra on Thursday 5th September 2019.
The unanimous vote by Congress to adopt new and amended statutes of the GFA has been greeted with universal applause. It was the final stage of what has been a long campaign to get the sand based sport full recognition and support as pertains elsewhere thanks to FIFA affiliation.
A formal presentation by Ghana Beach Soccer President Yaw Ampofo Ankrah would be made at the elective Congress on a date yet to be confirmed.
Also approved for final adoption at the elective GFA Congress are Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) and FUTSAL.
