With the 2023/2024 season registration commencing from June 20, 2023, one of the major and innovative changes to the system is the introduction QR code for generating the Digital Identity of team players and officials.
The Ghana Football Association from next season will not print out players and officials license again as the licenses will be generated by the clubs themselves for their matches.
In this regard, club IT officials, referees and match commissioners will be trained on the changes in the football IT system.
This improvement prevents fraudulent swapping of pictures on the player licence cards.
Digital ID enables users to take their credentials anywhere they go and for Referees and match Commissioners to have easy access to the squad list on their phones or any digital device.
Digital ID cards avoids spelling mistakes on handwritten team sheets by rather using mobile devices by officials for inspection.
A QR code will be generated for players and officials of each club, which when scanned reveal all the Licenses of the clubs registered players and officials.
This innovation is one of several improvements that the GFA have rolled up in relation to its IT Improvement Pillar in its strategic objectives.
The Ghana Football Association remains committed to continuous improvement.
