Okere District Assembly must be given credit for their initiative and innovation – Ampofo Ankrah

The Chairman of the Ghana Beach Soccer Committee has applauded the CEO of the Okere District Assembly Hon Kenneth Dan Addo for transforming virgin forest into a mini Beach Soccer arena.

Speaking to the media who are covering the ongoing 2021 Odwira Beach Soccer Cup, Yaw Ampofo Ankrah described the development as “monumental” and worthy of commendation.

“It’s not only about Beach Soccer actually, but more importantly, about developing communities and empowering the youth through Sports”.

The previously bushy land which leads to the captivating Asenema Waterfalls, has been cleared to allow for the construction of the first Beach Soccer Arena in mainland Ghana.

The process has taken several weeks rather than many months due thanks to a round – the – clock work timetable used to achieve what initially seemed impossible.

According to Ampofo Ankrah, Ghana Beach Soccer has been revived by this singular sports developmental project by the Okere District Assembly.

“To God be the Glory should be our first anthem and then we must appreciate and acknowledge those who God uses to execute his plans because this is not an every day occurrence when a Beach Soccer pitch is constructed on the mountains.”

According to Ampofo Ankrah, the new development at Asenema means over 300 new players from the 20 towns will be introduced to the sand sport.
