President Kurt Okraku says Ghana Football Association stands to make a lot gains if the Elite Talent Identification Program is judiciously followed and implemented.

He was speaking at the launch of the Elite Talent Identification Program on Wednesday.

The Elite Talent Identification Program is a comprehensive blueprint that seeks to drive the talent identification agenda of the GFA across the various Districts and Regions of Ghana.

These talents would be selected from the Communities, Districts and Regions of Ghana to form the base of the U-15 male and female national teams after which successful talents will progress to the Black Starlets and later to the Black Stars level.
