FIFA outlines Mandate of Normalization Committee to run Ghana football

The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has laid down the mandate of the normalization committee to run Ghana Football on the interim.

FIFA is expected to name a committee which will replace the Ghana Football Association for the next six months.

The committee are hence expected to carry out the following activities:

– To run the GFA’s daily affairs and cooperate with the special task force once it has been set up by FIFA, CAF and the Government of Ghana;

– To review the GFA statutes to ensure compliance with the requirements of FIFA and CAF, particularly art. 15 of the FIFA Statutes, and;

– Once the GFA statutes meet the requirements of FIFA and CAF, to organise and conduct elections of a GFA executive committee on the basis of the revised GFA statutes.

According to FIFA the normalisation committee shall be composed of an adequate number of members to be identified by a joint FIFA/CAF mission to be deployed to Ghana as soon as possible.

All members of the normalisation committee must pass an eligibility check to be carried out by the FIFA Review Committee.



The normalisation committee will act as an electoral committee and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions in the elections.

The specified period of time during which the normalisation committee shall perform its functions shall expire when all of the above-mentioned tasks have been properly fulfilled, but by no later than 31 March 2019.
