Kudus, Issahaku and Victor Boniface headline 2024 Ghana Football Awards

This year's ceremony will be the sixth edition and has become the pinnacle of the Ghanaian football season.

The 2024 edition of the Ghana Football Awards has been officially launched, with Kudus Mohammed, Karim Zito, Victor Boniface and others vying for top honours.

The event was launched at a colourful ceremony on Wednesday, (12 June 2024) in Osu, Accra.

This year’s ceremony will be the sixth edition and has become the pinnacle of the Ghanaian football season.

Celebrated broadcaster Karl Tufuoh, who also serves as the chairman of the awards board, expressed his satisfaction with the team’s efforts and assured that the awards night would be the best they have organised.

“A lot of work has gone into the preparation of this year’s event. At the Board level, it is always fascinating to engage in the debate about which player deserves to be shortlisted. To the best of our abilities as a Board, we have selected sportsmen and women who we believe have excelled in the year under review. May the best candidates win,” he said at the launch.

The Ghana Football Awards is an annual initiative by Football Impact Africa that celebrates and honours the remarkable achievements and contributions of football players, coaches, administrators, and other key stakeholders in Ghana.

This year’s event is scheduled to take place at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Center on Saturday, 29 June 2024.

Kudus Mohammed will be hoping to retain his title after being crowned “The Ghana Footballer of the Year in 2023”.

He must, however, beat off competition from Black Stars teammates, Inaki William, Osman Bukari and Abdul Fatawu Issahaku for the award.

In the Women’s Football of the Year category, two foreign-based players, Jennifer Kankam and Bridget Adu will compete with Comfort Yeboah and Ophelia Amponsah of Ampem Darkoa Ladies and Mukarama Abdulai of Hasaacas Ladies.
