FIFA President Sepp J. Blatter will on Saturday commission two FIFA sponsored projects at the Tema Sports Stadium and Prampram Soccer of Excellence.

According to the spokesman of the Ghana Football Association, Randy Abbey, the FIFA President who would be in the country for the MTN African Cup of Nations, would use the occasion to commission the two projects.

Mr Abbey said the Tema Stadium project would be an artificial turf that would be of great benefit to the Premier league clubs, especially those who use Tema as their home grounds.

The FIFA, he said, was also sponsoring the Prampram School of Excellence, used by national teams for their camping activities.

The GFA media spokesman said top football officials in the world would also attend the three-week tournament and added that the GFA had adequately prepared for the continental soccer fiesta.

He urged Ghanaian football fans to contribute to the success of the event with not only their supportfor the Black Stars victory but also cheer the other nations for a successful event.

Meanwhile, the new Black Stars skipper John Mensah has assured the nation of victory and urged Ghanaians to troop to the stadium to support the team to victory.
