It is no secret that Ampofo Ankrah is currently in talks with the Ghana Football Association on potential partnership and affiliation as encouraged by CAF leading to the accelerated growth of the sport on the domestic front, across the African continent and eventually a strong African presence beyond the continent.
Meanwhile, the "Ghana Beach Soccer @10" anniversary program, is also expected to roll out where clubs would be given the opportunity to present their internal set up-structures which would create an enabling environment for more funding, infrastructure and general support to boost the sport.
