Grenada Football Association satisfied with Government’s efforts

Newly re-elected President of the Grenada Football Association Cheney Joseph has praised the Minister for Sports, the Hon. Emmalin Pierre, on efforts to strengthen the relationship between the government and the various sporting associations in Grenada.

Joseph was speaking following a meeting between Minister Pierre and the island’s various sporting organizations recently, which has paved the way for improved facilities, additional equipment and a better relationship for all parties involved.

Minister Pierre during the meeting stressed the need for more collaborative efforts among the various sporting associations to have sports in Grenada on par with other Regional and international countries.
She said whereas it is important for the government to support the sporting groups, the onus is on the Associations to find innovative ways of maintaining their sporting disciplines.

President of the Grenada Football Association (GFA), Cheney Joseph has described the relationship between the Grenada Football Association and the Minister as an excellent one.

Joseph said for the past year, Minister Pierre through her government has assisted the Grenada Football Association with lease agreements, concessions and financial aid; which has heightened the level of football activities on the island.

He is hopeful that the relationship between the association and the government will continue.
