Mr. Kurt Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Thursday, May 21, led the Executive Council to have a discussion with officials of the English Football Association and the British High Commission via Webinar.

Officials of the British High Commission in Accra and their colleagues from the Football Association were scheduled to visit the headquarters of the GFA in May 2020, but that meeting had to be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Others included Cleopatra Nsiah Nketiah, Esq. – Attorney/Women’s Premier League Committee/Women’s Club Owner and Barbara Yankah – Secretary to the Women’s Premier League Committee.

British High Commissioner to Ghana H.E Iain Walker and Jasmine Griffiths – Head of Strategic Partnerships and Diaspora Relations were on hand to represent the British High Commission Accra in the discussion.

National & International Women’s Football Development Manager for the English FA, Rachel Pavlou led a three-member team during the discussion. The team also included Maria de León – Senior International Relations Manager and Siobhan Burke – International Relations Manager.

The engagement is expected to continue in the coming days to secure strategic International partners for women’s football.
