Upon arrival at the Labadi Beach Hotel, the delegation had a assessment meeting during which everyone expressed satisfaction over the visit to the host cities of Cape Coast and Takoradi.
The FOX Production team expressed their delight since they said, “the visit avail them the opportunity to see first-hand the facilities and allowed them to map out camera positioning in the host stadiums”.
The WAFU / FOX delegation equally highlighted the opportunity that the visit accorded them in contacting the management of the hotels to accommodate all delegations and identified two others where the Production team and WAFU / LOC and Association / Federations Presidents will be lodged.
The meeting was informed of the displeasure of Members of the LOC that they were not told of the Inspection visit. WAFU General Secretaries explained that it was more of a Technical inspection visit by the Production Team requested by our Partners FOX Networks Group (FNG). As such, it was deemed necessary to only take along the LOC Secretary General who would then report to the main body. We then apologised to the LOC through its Chairperson who accepted the apology on behalf of all members. He further urged the General Secretaries to write a letter of apology to the LOC. He then instructed the LOC Secretary to include the two WAFU General Secretaries on the LOC Whatsapp Platform to enable them follow the activities and discussions of the members.
The Chairperson of the Local Organising Committee, Mr. George Afriyie thanked all for the trip and instructed the LOC Secretary Mr. Emmanuel Dasoberi to call up an LOC meeting on Tuesday July 11, 2013 to further discuss the what-to-do list in order to deliver a very successful WAFU Cup of Nations Tournament from Ghana to Africa and the World.
