Ghana Football Association announces formation of nine new developmental national teams

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced the formation of nine new developmental national teams, a move aimed at fulfilling the needs of the National Football Philosophy and ensuring a smooth transition of players through the various age groups.

In a decision made in consultation with the Technical Directorate, four new teams will be established for boys and five for girls. These teams will include U-16, U-18, U-19, and U-21 for boys, and U-16, U-18, U-19, U-21, and U-23 for girls.

This strategic move is part of the GFA’s plan to fully implement its football strategy and philosophy. It is expected to prevent the loss of talent on the national front and facilitate a seamless progression of players from one age group to the next.

The new teams will provide more opportunities for coaches trained under the GFA’s DNA to operate at the elite level. Each team will camp, train, and play games three times a year to aid in the development of the players.

The players will automatically progress to the next level each year, ensuring a continuous cycle of growth and development.
