The GFA needs to move from ordinary guys who do not have the game at heart”.“Platini, Figo all of these guys were footballers. They loved the game and they want to move the game to the next level. All these FIFA  reforms we are talking about can only happen when the likes of Steve (Appiah) Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah get involved in the  administration of soccer in this country”. The event is set to attract the big names of the land including former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kuffour, Sam  Korankye Ankrah and the Ga Wulomo.  The dinner will take place on the 26th of June at the Banquet hall of the State House and the Testimonial match will follow  27th of June  2015 at the Accra Stadium.
