It’s not the responsibility of FA to ensure fans fill venues – Kurt Okraku tell clubs

The President of the Ghana Football Association has charged clubs to do more work to ensure fans troop to the various venues.

Low turnout at venues during league matches has become an issue in Ghana football and Kurt Okraku says the FA is not responsible to mobilize supporters.

Speaking at the recent GFA Congress, Mr Okraku charged all clubs to put in strategies to win the heart of fans.

“Our fans are not consuming our football, they are absent in our venues. It’s not the responsibility of the FA to ensure fans troop to the stadium. The clubs must be practical, and proactive and put up strategies to bring back the fans. Go down the streets and speak to them, listen to them, and know their concerns. If you fail to bring the fans sponsors like betPawa and Malta Guineas will not come on board”.

The 2022/23 betPawa Ghana Premier League will kick off on the weekend of Friday, September 9 to Monday, September 12 across the country.

League Champions Asante Kotoko SC will open their season at home while Accra Hearts of Oak open the season with an away fixture.
