President Kurt Edwin Simon-Okraku says efforts have been made by the Ghana Football Association to foster global cooperation within the football community.

He said this during the first day of the ongoing FIFA/CAF Coach education pathway course in Accra.

Emphasizing the importance of such educational initiatives, President Simeon-Okraku highlighted collaborative efforts to enhance football knowledge and development to advance football education.

The FIFA/CAF Coach education pathway Course is focused on the development of home-grown coach educators.

The programme comprises of over 150 hours of theory and practicals linked to the fundamental competencies of coach educators.

Coach educators from Egypt, The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Libya, Nigeria and Sierra Leone are taking part in the course with three coaches each.

Ghana is being represented by Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, Maxwell Konadu and Nana Agyemang - having completed the online pre-qualification assignments.

The five (5) days Course which started on Tuesday, November 21, at the Marriot Hotel would end on Saturday, November 25, 2023.

The FIFA Coach Educators Development Pathway programme will shift control to the coach educators them-selves, whereas the technical experts will challenge and support the pathway either virtually or in a brick and mortar location away from home.

The FIFA experts are led by Basir Mohammed with support from Frans Mokata Mogashoa, Zunaid Mall and Jessica Hernandez Mendez.
