Three Black Stars players, Andre Ayew, Kudus Mohammed, and Gladson Awako will headline this year’s edition of the Ghana Football Awards which comes off on Saturday, July 3, 2021, at the Grand Arena, Accra.

The trio have been shortlisted for the prestigious Ghana Footballer of the Year Award which is the flagship category of the awards scheme.

One of the three will take over from Arsenal star Thomas Partey who emerged as the winner in the two previous editions of the awards.

This was made known during the Nominees Announcement on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.

Andre Ayew, Kudus Mohammed, and Gladson Awako will lead several Ghanaian players, both home and abroad as well as foreigners playing in the Ghana League who have performed well under the year in review to be celebrated for the exploits.

While the Ghana Footballer of the Year remains the flagship award, other categories such as the Homebased Football of the Year, Goal of the Year, Most Vibrant Club on Social Media and Club CEO of the Year are all likely to generate more excitement.
