Football people’s favourite George Kwasi Afriyie will herald a flagship program of ONE PLAYER ONE BALL policy for every player playing in Ghana’s famous grassroots football system – Colts Premier League.

Introducing the policy of One Player One ball at Premier Colts football level will restore the interest and offer a basis for more development.

Dr McKorley, who is the Executive Chairman of McDan Group of Companies, is ready to offer a mouthwatering sponsorship package for colts football to form a core strong backbone to grassroots football across the length and breadth of the country. This will come in the construction of pitches and other key facilities available to bring grassroots football to Ghanaian children interested in pursuing a career in football.
