The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has played a big role in the country’s fight against Covid-19 by offering a national football team facility to be used as an isolation centre.
In a statement, GFA General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo confirms offering the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram to the government.
“Through our Medical Committee, we have gotten in touch with the authorities to make them aware that our facility at Prampram is available for use,” Addo says.
The centre was built in 2003 to accommodate national teams and can accommodate 1,000 people.
Latest reports suggest that Ghana has 566 confirmed Covid-19 cases and eight deaths.
The association has also been conducting awareness campaigns against Covid-19 which has led to the suspension of all football activities in the West African country and the rest of the world save for Belarus.
