The National Juvenile Committee headed by President of the Ghana Football Association, Mr Kurt E S Okraku has tasked the Regional FAs to organize Gala competitions to generate excitement ahead of the start of the league season.
The National Juvenile Committee held a Juvenile football stakeholders meeting last week to brainstorm on the way forward for Juvenile football in the Country.
Stakeholders at the meeting included the Regional Football Association, the GFA Technical Directorate, a representative from the National Physical Education Sector of the Ghana Education Service and the IT department of the GFA.
Key among the issues discussed at the meeting included how the RFA and the District offices would work for effective youth development, how the GFA and GES can collaborate and run an effective Juvenile system among others.
Speaking to Sey Mubarick after addressing Juvenile clubs at the Aliu Mahama Stadium, Northern Regional FA chairman , Alhaji Abu Hassan Rhyzo disclosed how the FA intend to revive Juvenile football.
” FIFA now recognises U-15 and U-17 so for this season we start it from there but for those who have U-13 it is optional and we have decided we will play the U-13 for the first round” Rhyzo indicated.
Though the league is expected to start on the 28th February, 2020, Alhaji Abu Hassan Rhyzo said the RFA will organize a successful Gala competition to herald the new season.
