The Ghana Rugby is expected to hold its 2020 Stakeholders Congress on Saturday, 22 February 2020 at the Secretariat in Osu.

Announcing the date for the 2020 Congress, Herbert Mensah, President of Ghana Rugby said the event is in line with a roadmap set by the Union in 2014.

“The Stakeholder Congress we held in 2014 formed the basis of the 2014 Ghana Rugby Blueprint we put together which eventually resulted in most of what we did, including the ten-team domestic league, resuscitation of women’s rugby, the youth development “Get Into Rugby Programme”

Herbert Mensah also said that off-the-field successes such as the implementation of the scrumIT Rugby Management System, the implementation of the Sage One online accounting system, the annual auditing of financial systems, the achievement of Full Membership from World Rugby on 10 May 2017, the development of key strategic plans such as the Strategic Plan and Development Plan and the adoption of a new Constitution all followed from the 2014 Stakeholder Congress and subsequent ‘Ghana Rugby Blueprint”.

“It is now almost seven years since the first Stakeholders Congress and we feel that, in light of the enormous challenges we are facing, that it is time to consult with our stakeholders again in a more formal manner. The outcome of this very important event will serve as critical inputs to a new “Ghana Rugby Blueprint” and a revised Strategic Plan for Ghana Rugby,” Mensah said.

Attendees to the “Ghana Rugby Stakeholders Congress” will be by invitation and will include a wide variety of people from Rugby Bodies and Clubs, governing bodies, the media and other selected stakeholders.

Ghana Rugby is the official full member of both World Rugby (2017) and Rugby Africa in Ghana-West Africa and is responsible for the management and development of the Game Rugby Union in the country.

The Union is governed by a Constitution and administers five KPAs (Key Performance Areas) namely: (1) Youth Development & Growth through the World Rugby “Get Into Rugby” Programme, (2) Women in Ghana Rugby, (3) Training & Education, (4) Domestic Competitions and (5) International Performance.
