The Technical Director of Right to Dream (RTD) Academy, Mas-Ud Didi Dramani, says his outfit’s investment in women’s football is its contribution to the Ghana Football Association’s broader view of football in the country.We’re thinking about how the female football industry is supposed to be. That is also our contribution towards the Football Association’s broader view of football in Ghana,” he told GraphicOnline in reaction to the pre-season tour of Ghana by FC Nordsjlland’s female team.The 26-member contingent made up of players and officials of FC Nordsjaelland pitched camp at the RTD Academy in Old Akrade on arrival in the country on July 18.

They are our first option when it comes to talents so we are the same people in different locations.”We have a Ghanaian player called Princess Boafo in the Danish team. She is the first female player we transferred to the team in 2021,” he revealed.He seized the opportunity to commend the entire RTD staff, led by the Managing Director, Mr Eddie Mensah, for playing a huge role to host the European team.
