The Club Licensing Department of the Ghana Football Association has organised a one-day workshop on the Club Licensing Online Platform(CLOP) for the newly promoted Access Bank Division One League Clubs.

The workshop took place at the Headquarters of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Wednesday July 10, 2024.

The workshop is part of the GFA's commitment to keep the newly promoted clubs at the cutting edge of the digital space and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills for effective Club Licensing engagements.

Organised specifically for the newly promoted Division One League Clubs, it was attended by the Club Licensing Managers of six (6) clubs including Dormaa Unity FC, Port City, True Democracy FC, Walewale Catholic Stars, Wa Sore Nante FC, Inter Allies and Galaxy FC, who were taken through the new regulations and a practical session in the application process.

The event was facilitated by the GFA'S Club Licensing Manager Esme Mends and CLOP instructor, Francis Adu.

By ensuring that clubs meet the licensing requirements, we are fostering a professional environment that benefits players, fans, and the broader football community."
