In a massive show of leadership and concern, members the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association have donated their monthly allowances for September to the victims of the Offinso accident which claimed the lives of 7 juvenile footballers.

All the members of the Council collectively decided to undertake the gesture on Monday, September 21, 2020 to support the victims.

This follows an accident on Saturday, involving about 34 young footballers of Africa Vision Soccer Academy claiming the lives of 7 footballers as the minibus they were travelling on plunged into the Offin river.

Sadly, six of the young footballers died on the spot while one who was in a critical condition died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi on Sunday.

Ten of the victims were treated at the St. Patrick’s Hospital and have been discharged.

The GFA on Sunday, September 20, 2020 sent a delegation led by Executive Council member Frederick Acheampong and Ashanti Regional Football Association Chairman, Osei Tutu Agyemang to Offinso to commiserate with families of the victims and to visit the injured players.
