African Origin Travel and Tours have been transporting football fans to support Ghana

The Ghana FA has rubbished reports it has dropped African Origin Travel and Tours as an agency to transport fans to support the national teams.

The Accra-based firm has distinguished itself in its dealing with supporters over the years with their recent feat being the handling of over 1000 supporters for the 2013 Nations Cup.

African Origin provided decent transportation and first class accommodation for several fans and sections of the media during the month-long tournament in South Africa.

It however encountered unforeseen problems during the return of the traveling party after the tournament.

These problems were however quickly addressed by management of the travel agency to ensure all the fans and members of the Ghanaian media that traveled to South Africa returned home safely.

There are however growing rumours the Ghanaian-owned travel agency have been dropped by the Ghana FA from the list of its recommended firms that handling such business.

A statement from the GFA has however described these rumours and reports as false with no basis especially with an impending tournament with the Ghana U20 side later this month in Turkey fast on the horizon.

?Our attention has been drawn to a news report claiming that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has dropped African Origin Travel and Tours as the travel agency sending supporters to the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey next month,? the GFA statement read.

?We wish to state emphatically that there is no truth in the report.

?The GFA does not select travel agencies to send supporters to international tournaments to support the country during competitions.

?The GFA only recommends reputable travel agencies in the country to the embassies to facilitate visa acquisition for supporters.

?The report claimed that the GFA is unhappy with African Origin Travel and Tours because of the ?poor services rendered? during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

?This claim is untrue because the GFA did not send supporters to the tournament therefore could not have appointed African Origin Travel and Tours to send supporters to the tournament in South Africa.

?The GFA has no problems with African Origin Travel and Tours sending supporters to the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey next month and any other tournaments.?
