President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt E. S. Okraku has congratulated George Afriyie For accepting to be part of Division One League Advisory Committee for an 18-Club League.
George Afriyie, a losing candidate during the last GFA Presidential elections will represent the interest of members of Zone 3 in the Division One league.
His gesture to accept a leading role in the newly formed committee has caught the eye of the Ghana Football Association President who has sent a congratulatory message to him.
Kurt Okraku took his Facebook page to send thank to the Owner of Planners Athletic for accepting to be part of the committee.
Joining Afriyie on the list of DOL representatives are Bofoakwa Tano’s David Obeng Nyarko who represents Zone 1 while Jojo Duncan, President of Proud United will serve the interest of members from Zone 2.
They will be joined by two persons nominated by the Ghana FA.
The Executive Council of the GFA took a decision last week to form a 5-member committee for the implementation of the transitional provision on the number of participating clubs in the National Division One League.
This 5-member ad-hoc committee would advise the Executive Council on the format, the possible name of the new 18-club Division One League, the phases of the implementation, whether or not a third-tier League will be required and its format.
The current DOL structure has 48 teams housed in 3 zones. The move by the GFA to limit participating to 18 teams, has been fiercely opposed by some club administrators albeit it is inspired by a stipulation in the federation’s approved statutes.
