The Ghana Football Association (GFA) eTrophy Championship pre-qualifiers wrapped up over the weekend at the various selected video game centres across the nation.

The pre-qualifiers which were opened to the general public took place on Saturday, May 7 with several gamers looking to secure one of the 32 slots available for the main qualifiers to be held on May 14.

The GFA etrophy Championship is being organised in partnership with the Esports Association, Ghana (EAG) whose President, Kwesi Hayford, spoke with EAN back in April stating his willingness to support the GFA.

“The competition is in partnership with FIFAe and what we have is logistics personnel and expertise to brand these interactive gaming experiences because we’ve done it and we’ve been doing it and if they want a national approach, we already also have members across the nation.”

“So from us, yes in a partnership role, yes in a consultation role. I mean definitely, they also have their own requirement.”

“FIFAe definitely will give out an outline as to how the event will go and that is where our priority is and then also we are in touch with the grassroots, that is the key thing. That is where we have an eye and expertise to bring on board to make successful.”

The GFA eTrophy Championship serves as qualifiers to select the country’s 3-member national team for the 2022 FIFAe Nations Cup which is set to take place from July 27 to 30 in Denmark.
