GFA Nods Liberty Professionals FC Name Change

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has approved a request for a name change from Liberty Professionals Football Club to Hohoe United Football Club Limited.

The Club earlier wrote to the FA requesting a name change due to a “change” in its “ownership”.

In an approval letter, the GFA said, “The GFA notes that Liberty Professionals Football Club, an incorporated company under the Companies Act, 1963 (Act 179) has its name changed correctly under the law.

“Consequently, the GFA hereby approves the change of name from Liberty Professionals Football Club to HOHOE UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB LIMITED subject to the conditions below.”

It, however, laid out conditions for the approval.

“Kindly take notice that all documents, rights and obligations including but not limited to, debts or fines owed to the GFA and player registration licenses or fees in the name of Liberty Professionals Football Club shall still remain valid and shall continue in force as if same are owed by or are in the name of HOHOE UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB LIMITED.”

The Chief Executive Officer of the Club, Linda Ansong on Tuesday discredited reports that the club has been sold, noting it is now under the leadership of its remaining founder.

It explained that the Club’s objective has rather changed as it has given up its slot in the Division One League to operate as a “world’s class developer of Ghanaian football talent”.
