The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has launched the 2022/23 Beach Soccer League in Accra.
Fourteen Beach Soccer Clubs have registered to compete in the league set to kick off on May 27, 2023.
GFA President, Kurt Okraku and General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo represented the FA at the launch, with the FA partnering Ghana’s beach soccer committee for the first time to organise a top flight league.
Its vice chairman, Yaw Gymfi Kusi Awere and Nana Poku Amankwah – a member of the committee, were also present, with the GFA signaling its delight coming on board.
‘’So after that historic and exciting FA Cup competition that was organised last year by the Football Association, it [beach soccer league launch] is a day we’ve been waiting for, the committee and competitions department of the FA have been working very, very well behind the scenes to ensure that we all witness this particular day.” Okraku said.
Vice Chairman Yaw Gyamfi expressed gratitude to the Ghana Football Association for their support stating that clubs are raring to go this season.
‘’I would like to thank the GFA, especially the President and General Secretary Prosper Harrison, it’s been very tough for the past 9 years, we all know that in recent times Beach Soccer has not been active apart from the FA Cup,” he said.
“This time we are going to see a different league because we’ve been doing this for so many years now and this is the first time that the GFA is going to have the Beach Soccer League,” he added.
In order to help the clubs before the start of the 2022/ 2023 season, the Ghana Football Association will pay an amount of GHc10,000 to each of the 14 participating clubs.
The winner of the League will be paid GHc15,000 with the runner up taking GHc7,000 as prize monies.
