Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku outlined ambitious plans to revamp the Ghanaman Soccer Center of Excellence in Prampram during a Meet the Press event in Kumasi on Wednesday.
One of the key features of the proposed upgrades is the construction of a 40-bed accommodation facility, marking a significant stride towards modernizing the center to align with global standards.
Partially financed by the government’s allocation from the World Cup 2022 funds, the initiative seeks to enhance the center’s infrastructure to cater to the needs of different national teams and facilitate match hosting.
“We are constructing flood lights on the AstroTurf in Prampram. Building a 40-bed accommodation facility, top-of-rang natural grass pitches and procurement of vehicles for regional blocs,” Okraku elaborated on the multifaceted development plans.
As part of the extensive upgrade initiative, floodlights will be installed on the AstroTurf, and vehicles will be procured for regional blocs, adding further depth to the renovation efforts.
These additions underscore the GFA’s unwavering dedication to fortifying football infrastructure and ensuring adequate facilities for training sessions and competitive matches.
Since its establishment, the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence has been a crucial hub for training and camp activities for various Ghanaian national teams.
With these planned enhancements, the center is poised to strengthen its pivotal role in nurturing and honing football talent while facilitating the sport’s expansion at the national level.
