Answering a question on the impact of the 3 days event on the Ahafo regions in a brief media interaction at his residence in Accra. The RFA boss expressed optimism about the impact of the festival, which he believes will yield greater results that can’t be quantified in any term.
“The impact is enormous, every sector in the region is going to benefit. The presence of the Black Star players in town will see a sharp increase in revenue streams of the regions because many people will be travelling here.”
“The hospitality industry will receive a boost, the fans will see their beloved international players and culturally we will have the opportunity to tell the rest of the world; what we eat, wear and so forth.”

He also continued by saying, the biggest advantage will be realized by the football community since there will be the focal point of the 3 days of activities in the region.
“I think it’s a wonderful blessing to the football community because of the football business conference where we have the opportunity to exchange ideas. And I am particularly happy because players, administrators, stakeholders and even the fans are inclusive. It will help us refine the passion and zeal which is not enough to succeed in the beautiful game.”
