I Will Improve FA Cup Competition, Says Newly Elected Chairman

Newly appointed FA Cup chairman, Wilson Arthur has promised to bring his wealth of experience to bear where the new President of GFA left.

The astute football administrator will replace Mr Kurt Okraku as the chairman of the FA Cup competition.

However, the president of Skyy FC also pledged to be a good team leader and described his appointment as one of the best things that have happened.

Speaking to Kumasi FM, he said, "I've served Eleven wise as chairman, I brokered the MTN sponsorship for Kotoko, the division one league sponsor in the erstwhile administration was secured by me. I own a club, Skyy FC and has a FIFA standard pitch, I have invested so much in the game too. I was employed as a consultant for the 2015 MTN FA Cup final between Kotoko and Medeama by MTN, which has been the best so far."

He lauded GFA president forgiven him the opportunity to serve as the Chairman describing the appointment as a ladder to the present.

"I'm sure the good works I did with Mr Kurt Okraku then has earned me this position. He has a lot of trust in me and I promise I won't disappoint. I'm a marketing person and know how to build a brand, we will raise the standard he reached."

He assured Ghanaians to bring on board more sponsorship for the FA Cup.

"sponsorship for the FA Cup will be enormous in my tenure because I have the records. The FA Cup has a brand and I will build upon the good works of Mr Okraku, I will do everything within my means to lift the standard from where he left it.

"I admit I'm a busy person but I will delegate most of the duties since we are many but the assurance is that we will deliver."

He used the opportunity to thank the President of Ghana Football Association, Kurt E.S Okraku for finding him fit for the appointment.
