Major Boost for Rugby.

The Director General of the National Sports Authority, Mr Wolanyo Agra has noted that his outfit is willing to provide a new Rugby pitch to help in the development of the Game provides the Authorities of the University Of Ghana will grant a land for the pitch.

 

 

He noted that Rugby is one of the sports that is doing so well worldwide adding that the sport could be made part of the academic curriculum in schools if the Association will formally write to his outfit for them to take the process forward.

 


Mr Agra made this comments at the Official launch of a major fund raising exercise dubbed ‘Rally for Rugby’ which is being undertaken by the Ghana Rugby Association in partnership with Kingdom Support Services.

 


The fundraising exercise is aimed at seeking the indulgence of individuals and corporate bodies in the attempt to actualize the long overdue two-year strategic plan of the Rugby Association and the total development of the game nationwide.

 


Speaking at the event, the president of the Ghana Rugby Association, Mrs. Gifty Annan Myers noted the launch of the exercise marks a turning point for Rugby in the country to an era where able technical men are developed and officials are upgraded and the public is very educated about the game.

 


She noted however that the ultimate aim of the exercise is to turn the Associations fortunes and satisfy the pre-requisites that will propel the it’s into full membership status of the International Rugby Board (IRB).

 


Madam Myers noted that when the Association joins IRB, the Association will benefit from IRB’S financial support in the form of development among other grants. She therefore appealed to all individuals and corporate bodies who would be approached for support to respond favourably.

 


On his part, The Head of Sports at the University, Dr Owusu Ansah noted that the University has a permanent site being used by the University for Rugby but the Authorities will gladly relinquish it for National Use and extended an invitation to the DG to visit the intended site.

 


The launch was sponsored by the Accra Brewery Limited with KPMG Being the official audit outfit for the fund.
