Colts football very active in Ashanti region – Chairman Osei Tutu Agyemang

Chairman of the Ashanti Regional Football Association (ARFA) Osei Tutu Agyemang says COLTS Football is very active and vibrant in the region following interventions from the headquarters.

Speaking at a meeting between Executives of the regional Football Association and President Simeon-Okraku on Sunday, he stressed that new levels of energy has been injected into the organization of COLTS football and the other regional competitions in recent years.

The Ghana Football Association has for the past three years invested heavily in the supply of free footballs and bibs, payment of officiating fees, the introduction of Game Centres and increased subventions for the ten regional football Associations with the singular aim of developing COLTS football, as grassroots football remains a vital component of the football ecosystem.

The Association has also run the inter-club U-17 and inter-regional U-17 Championships within the last three seasons through the support of KGL Foundation. Under this program, the Ghana Football Association supplies plagues and trophies to regional champions, gold medals to the winning teams and silver medals to the runners up as well as plagues to the top scorers and best players in the various regions.

‘’We have been very, very active with competitive COLTS football for the past four years and the turnout has been remarkable’’ Chairman Osei Tutu Agyemang told ghanafa.org.

‘’As a regional football governing body, we believe that the success of our tomorrow depends on our today so we are doing everything possible to provide the platform to players to develop their talent.

‘’We have also organized courses for coaches in grassroots football and made good use of the support that comes from the headquarters, so we are optimistic about the future’’ he added.

The Ashanti regional U-17 side defeated their mates from Brong Ahafo to win the last edition of the KGL Foundation inter-regional U-17 championship in Kumasi last year.

The Ashanti region currently boasts of one hundred and ninety-four active COLTS clubs that compete in the regional COLTS League.
