Ghana will soon unveil a presidential football policy to develop young talent for national teams. This was announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, reported by the Ghanaian media.

Akufo-Addo said the logic of the policy is to correct what has gone wrong in Ghana football, particularly with the men’s national team, the Black Stars. The new football policy will be to scout, develop and nurture young football talents for national teams.

“The recent Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast was probably the low point of the Black Stars’ performance, and left the nation saddened. I believe it is time for us to take a long-term, far-sighted approach to correcting what has gone wrong,” Akufo-Addo said. The football policy announced by the Ghanaian President will see the School Sports Department of the Ministry of Education working hand in hand with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, in collaboration and synergy with the Ghana Football Federation to build district, regional and national youth teams for boys and girls.

Ghana’s football performances have seen a downward trajectory in recent times. The Black Stars crashed out of the group stages of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, having suffered a similar fate already in 2021.
