Executives of the Ghana Mini Football Association last Friday paid a courtesy call on the president of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), Ben Nunoo Mensah at his office in Accra.

The three-man delegation comprised Mr Ako Nai, President, Mr Emmanuel Anyetei Adjei, Secretary and Mr, Evans Amewugah, Communications Director.

They briefed the GOC President on their history, preparedness to support the grooming, training of young players especially with the Mini Football and plans for the future.

They also enquired about processes to be affiliated to the GOC and the possibilities of adding Mini Football to the sports disciplines for the 2023 African Games to be hosted in Ghana.

The GOC President welcomed them and advised them to be active with their programmes, activities and contacts with their parent international body in Switzerland as well as the continental body in Tunisia.

According to Mr Ako Nai, their game is different from the normal football and futsal, as they use a smaller field and ball and the game is handled by four referees.

He disclosed that Ghana has once participated in an international tournament and they are ranked 9th.

He said they have applied and are in the process of joining the National Sports Authority (NSA).
