President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwasi Nyantakyi, has revealed their intent to work closely with the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) to support players through pension schemes and insurances that will underwrite cost relating to the treatment of injuries.
The PFAG is a body whose aim is to build strong relationships among professional footballers in Ghana, sustaining and protecting their interests and providing them with skills after their football careers end.
The PFAG also provides a platform which helps in building partnership among all sectors of the football community to ensure that all stakeholders act in unison in the interest of professional footballers and in improving the lives of footballers, leading to the development of sport in Ghana.
Mr. Nyantakyi in his address to stakeholders who were present at the GFA’s three day summit mentioned that “The GFA is going to continue to engage with Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) to support players through pension schemes and insurances that will underwrite cost relating to the treatment of injuries”.
He also urged the PFAG to collaborate with the Retired National Footballers Association of Ghana(RENFAG), to ensure that players are duly represented at the FA’s annual congresses and their interests are well articulated.
