    Ghana FA announces first ever Video Conferencing Congress

    The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have announced that their 26th ordinary session of Congres will take place on Thursday, August 27, 2020.

    The announcement was made on the GFA website following an Executive Council meeting on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at the GFA headquarters in Accra.

    The GFA said it had exercised its powers under Article 31(2) of the GFA Statutes 2019 in fixing the date.

    The meeting though will not be held in the usual way where Congressmen and women gather at a venue for their deliberations and decision making due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    “It would be recalled in a bulletin (No.1 of 2020) addressed to all Companies and the media, the Registrar of Companies, pursuant to the power conferred on her by Section 378(2) of the Companies Act, 2019 (Act 992), directed that all companies may hold their Annual General Meetings (AGM) electronically,” a part of GFA statement read.

    “Consequently, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), having its number of Congress delegates exceeding the limit of One Hundred (100) persons, will apply and conduct its Congress via Online Video Conferencing subject to clearance from the Registrar of Companies on August 27, 2020.”

    “In compliance with Article 31 of the GFA Statutes 2019, members of the GFA will be sent the formal convocation of Congress in writing accordingly.”

    It will be the first ordinary congress of GFA under the leadership of Kurt Okraku, who was voted into office in October 2019.

    Congressmen and women are expected to decide on the start date of the next season after the 2019/20 campaign was cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
