The Ghana Football Association go to the polls today to elect a president, as demanded by football's world governing body, FIFA. Five candidates are in the reckoning for the presidential position.

Acting GFA chairman, Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is considered to be the frontrunner in the race, faces tough competition from former FA vice-chairman, Joseph Ade Coker, executive council chairman, Y.A Ibrahim, Kojo Bonsu and Vincent Odotei Sowah.

122 delegates from the regional football associations will vote at the elections, which will be held at the Kama conference centre, Labone in the Greater Accra region.

Ahead of today's important event, some of the contestants had sought an interim injunction from an Accra high court to block the elections.

The initiators of the court action claim there was no transparency in the pre-election arrangements by the authorised electoral committee.

The new FA president will also head the new 22-member executive committee.
