Ghana FA signs co-operation pact with China FA

Posted On Thursday, 16th August 2012

The Ghana Football Association has signed a cooperation deal with their Chinese counterparts to further develop football in both countries.

The deal was reached on Wednesday when the Chinese Football Association leaders met GFA officials, led by President Kwesi Nyantakyi, in Xi’an.

Under the pact, the GFA will support China in developing their youth football while the Asians, who are giants in women’s football in the world, will help Ghana boost the female game in the West African country.

Coaches, referees and administrators will also be involved in the agreement as both countries will exchange experiences to seek to develop the game in both countries.

“A team of officials from the Chinese FA led by the vice-president Mr Lin and the GFA had a meeting today and we looked at various areas of cooperation,” Nyantakyi said.

“Apart from the engagement between the two senior national teams, we agreed that we should look at some exchange of ideas in areas of women’s football and youth football.

“We agreed that we should help them in youth football and they will help us in women football.

“The Chinese have a good pedigree in women’s football and they have been world champions before and we have comparative advantage in youth football.

“Beyond that we will be looking at exchange programmes for coaches, referees and administrators for both countries.”

China held Ghana to a 1-1 draw in a friendly played in Xi’an on Wednesday night.
