Famed Ghanaian entrepreneur Dr. Kofi Amoah has revealed his plan to save Ghanaian football.
Dr. Amoah, who is most well known for bringing Western Union to Ghana, is also a well-respected football administrator.
His experience culminated in being president of the Ghana Football Association’s Normalization Committee, which was tasked with rebuilding Ghanaian football, in the wake of the “Number 12” documentary which exposed corruption in Ghana football.
Dr. Amoah’s 8-year plan is summarized as follows:
- Suspension of national team activity to save millions of dollars (2022)
- The money saved is invested in football infrastructure and training (2022-24)
- Quality of football improves resulting in more interest in the league and financial rewards (2024-26)
- Ghana has one of the best leagues and national teams in the world and will win an AFCON (2026-30)
Though ambitious, this plan will likely be popular as the Black Stars’ popularity is the lowest it has been for 20 years in the wake of their disappointing AFCON 2021 campaign.
