Football News Nations FC to have pre-season training in South Africa - Brands and Commercial manager confirms

Brands and Commercial Manager of Nations FC, Kennedy Boakye-Ansah has confirmed that the playing body will have pre-season in South Africa ahead of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season.

The Division One League side have gained promotion to the elite division after finishing as Zone Two champions.

Nations FC sealed their promotion two weeks ago with a remarkable come-from-behind 3-2 victory against WAFA.

Ahead of their maiden Premier League campaign next season, the playing body and the technical team will have their pre-season in South Africa.

"I must say the team will have its pre-season in South Africa," he told Kumasi-based Pure.

"From there, we will move to Italy before the team return to Ghana. We have already spoken to some teams in South Africa for friendly games.

"In the coming days, a kit sponsor will be announced and other announcements will follow as well."

Asked if the team will be strengthened, he said, "We have a good team but we will still bring in some players before the start of the Ghana Premier League next season.

"We recruited a player from Ivory Coast and so the team will be strengthened," he added.

Meanwhile, Nations FC will be crowned champions of Zone Two after they secure promotion to the Ghana Premier League.

The coronation ceremony will take place on Sunday, June 4, 2023, at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in Abrankese, where they will face Asokwa Deportivo.

Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku, Members of the Division One League Board, and officials from Access Bank will be present at the ceremony to present Nations FC with the winners' trophy, medals, and prize money.
