"Currently, when we took over, we have had meetings with all stakeholders within the football sector, we met the general public through the media, the old footballers, the coaches association and the everyone that matter in the football sector"

The Volta Regional Football Association in the bid to see football in the region develop has come up with an idea to have a football development plan in the region, a step the FA has taken to gather information from all stakeholders regarding problems facing the regional football.

"For some time now, the region has suffered in terms of football, football made the region alive, but for some time now, you all agree with me we are hungry for football. As young men and women I believe you will put your head together to raise a team for us that we will all come together and support so that at the end of the day, we can also watch football from the stands"

The Executive Council later paid a courtesy call on the former Regional Football Association chairman Mr. Francis Dogbatse to commensurate with him for the lost of his late wife, Madam Regina Adzo Dogbatse.
