As elections at the world governing body approaches, the Accra date is one sure way of amassing support across the region, which holds a key bloc in the Confederation of African Football.
Hosted by the Ghanaian Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, it would see hopefuls HRH Prince Ali Al-Hussien, Gianni Infantino and Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa addressing the guests.
A message from Jerome Champagne, also a contender, will be read out to attendees by a representative.
A crucial event, it plays an important role in determining (to a larger extent), who becomes the next president of the world governing football body.
