The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is the governing body of association football in Ghana from 1957 to 2018, based in Kumasi. The association was dissolved with “immediate effect”, according to Minister of Sport, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, on 7 June 2018, after the uncovering of a corruption scandal. In October 2019, a new president Kurt Okraku was elected and the association reconvened upon the completion of the work of the FIFA Normalization Committee. Mr Mark Addo was elected vice president in November 2019.
