Kwesi Nyantakyi named as FIFA Foundation board member

Kolkata, India (PANA) - Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has been appointed to serve as a board member of the FIFA Foundation.

His appointment was made during a FIFA Council meeting convened on Friday in Kolkata, India.

According to the FIFA media channel, the newly established FIFA foundation will provide a solid legal and institutional basis for FIFA’s social development initiatives.

One of the core intentions of the FIFA Foundation will be to institutionalise a commitment of the FIFA Legends to engage in such activities and act as promoters of FIFA’s aims and objectives related to social development.

The FIFA Foundation should be operational by the first quarter of 2018 and the FIFA Council will appoint a selection of respected personalities from football and other areas of society as additional members of the Foundation Board.

Nyantakyi who was re-elected as a member of the FIFA Council early this year, will be serving on the same committee with FIFA President Gianni Infantino and one other FIFA Executive Council member.
