The Ghana Football Association has secured land to construct AstroTurf in Bolgatanga.

The land, which was donated by Mr. Ababu Afelibik, headmaster of the Bolgatanga Senior High School, has been duly registered in the name of the Ghana Football Association.

The GFA, with the help of the Upper East Regional Football Association, the Chiefs, elders and the Community on Wednesday, August 05, 2020, unveiled the signpost for the project at a brief ceremony.

President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt E.S Okraku has inspected a 6.5-acre land secured by the federation at Wintogo, Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region for the construction of an AstroTurf.

This follows the decision of the Executive Council to use part of the project funds from the FIFA Forward 1.0 programme for the construction of two Astro Turfs – one at Prampram and the other at Bolgatanga.

Executive Council members Nana Sarfo Oduro and Alhaji Salifu Zida Shaibu, who doubles as Chairman of the Upper East Regional Football Association, accompanied the GFA President. Also, in attendance were Executive Council members of the Regional and District Football Association for Upper East.

The construction of this AstroTurf will come as a relief to the people of Bolgatanga who have been without a quality playing field for years.

The pitch, when completed, will serve the people of Bolgatanga and its environs.

The FIFA Forward 1.0 fund was one of the key issues that President Kurt Simeon Okraku discussed with FIFA President Gianni Infantino during his visit to the Home of Football, Switzerland in December 2019. Since the visit, the GFA has been working with the FIFA Development officers who visited Ghana in March 2020.
