President Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku, Vice President Mark Addo and General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo will represent the Ghana Football Association (GFA) at the 70th FIFA Congress today.

The 70th FIFA Congress, which was initially slated for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on June 5 was rescheduled to September 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Congress is being held online for the first time in the world governing body’s history as a result of the travel restrictions in many member countries.

Having been appointed as one of the two Scrutineers for the Congress, GFA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, together with Portugal's Hugo Freitas will count the votes during the Congress in accordance with Article 28 par. 2 lit. e of the FIFA Statutes and Aricle 3 of the Standing Orders of the Congress.

Mr Addo is also expected to ensure that the correct majority and quorum are applied and to count the votes submitted by FIFA member associations.

The following are among the items on the agenda: the approval of the FIFA Annual Report 2019, the revised budget for 2019-2022; and the detailed budget for 2021.

The Congress, which will commence at 15:00 (CET), will be streamed live on FIFA.com and will be followed by a press conference.
