FA sanctions compulsory health directive

Date: 21-May-2010











The Ghana Football Association has highlighted the importance of putting in place stringent health mechanism to prevent fatalities in the domestic league.

As a body that conforms to the regulations of the World Anti-Doping Agency - WADA, the FA will be ensuring that issues bordering on doping are critically looked at.

The just ended season saw the premier league hit with the terrible news of the death of Kessben FC's 19 year-old defender Bartholomew Yeboah, who died a day after suffering complications following a challenge in a league game.

And to prevent any of such happenings in the future, the FA says the coming season would witness a compulsory medical examination for all premiership players.

FA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi announced the sport body's decision at the Ordinary Session of the Ghana Football Association's Congress on Thursday.

"I hope the coming year will witness improvement in every aspect of the organisation of the league," he told the General Assembly.

"Effective the 2010/2011 football season, a number of innovations will be seen about the premier league.

"All Premier Division clubs will comply with certain medical conditions which include a compulsory medical examination for all of its players, anti doping etc. before the commencement of the league season."

Serious concerns have been raised about sub-standard nature of some of the Premier League match venues whilst the dormant and under-equipped condition of most club offices has affected transfer of information betwe en the PLB and the clubs and vice versa.

Gruzah snubs E.T Mensah over increase in Premier League clubs
Posted On Wednesday, 7th July 2010

King Faisal Football Club president Alhaji Karim Grusah has dismissed suggestions by former Sports Minister E T Mensah to increase the number of clubs participating in the Ghana Premier League.

The Employment and Social Welfare Minister wants the number of clubs to be increased from 16 to 20 for the next campaign which begins in August.

“If we look at the Essipong Stadium in Sekondi, no club will be playing on it in the coming season. This means the stadium will be not used for a whole season. So I am making a humble appeal to the GFA and PLB to consider an increase in the number of clubs in the GLO Premier to twenty to make sure the stadium is put to an effective use,” Mensah said on Tuesday when the Black Stars visited the Osu Castle.

But Grusah disagrees: “E T Mensah is getting everything wrong here. How many teams play in the German Bundesliga I? Is it not 18? Torino has been relegated in Italy, have they not? They have one of the best stadia in the world yet they are not playing in the Serie A. How about that?”

Grusah believes there are a lot of pressing issues the PLB and GFA should attend to rather than pondering over the increase in clubs.

“All the clubs cannot have enough sponsorship, those who qualified to play in Africa could not play in the last two years and the standard of play has been very low. These are issues the PLB and GFA must address and not the increase in the number of clubs.”

Not sure though. Heard on Joy FM that GHALCA was complaining that they are yet to receive some money from Glo for last season.

Ashgold Snatch Cudjoe From Kessben
Friday, 23 July 2010


KESSBEN FC fans will indeed miss the beautiful play and abundant experience of midfield general Samson Cudjoe in the upcoming league season.

Authentic reports available to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS say Cudjoe has committed his future to Ashantigold FC where he is expected to anchor their midfield.

Though both Ashgold FC and Kessben FC officials are keeping mute over the monetary package that changed hands before a deal was sealed, sources say the latter amassed huge sums of money before letting go their prized asset.

Reports filtering in from Obuasi has it that Cudjoe has started serious training with his new colleagues who are delighted to have a player of the caliber of Cudjoe in their fold.

Cudjoe is a naturally gifted player who is blessed with good technique and the ability to shoot from long range.

As a player, Cudjoe is very quiet, respectful and disciplined so he doesn’t attract cautions from referees and his presence in midfield alone is a recipe for success.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that Cudjoe is not the only Kessben FC player heading for Obuasi, as Edmund Owusu Peprah has also signed a fresh deal with Ashgold FC.

Like in the Cudjoe case, the contractual fee for Peprah was not made available to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS.

Glo Deal In Trouble? : Clubs Suffer Deficit

The financial woes of clubs taking part in the Premier League appear to be deepening as the support from the competition’s title sponsor, Globacom, seems to have hit a snag.

The Nigerian international telecommunications giant, operating under the name Glo, is yet to honour its financial obligations to Ghana’s Premier League, and Graphic Sports investigations have revealed the company currently owes the Ghana Football Association (GFA) an amount of about $3million covering the the second tranch of last season’s package and the first part for this season.

By the agreement in the three-year sponsorship deal signed three seasons ago, Glo was to pay an amount of $3million a year for three years.

The first half was to be paid before the commencement of the season and the second part midway through the season.

While there was no problem with regard to the payment in the first season of the agreement, the second season suffered as the sponsor did not keep to the agreed payment schedule.

As of now, the second tranch for last season has not been paid and an August 10 deadline agreement reached between the GFA and Glo for the settlement of that money has not been honoured.

More threatening, there is no word of when the $1.5million being the first part for this season will be paid as the clubs are at their wits’ end over how to raise monies and prepare adequately for the season which kicks off on September 5.

That is not all, Glo is also yet to honour its obligations to the senior national team, the Black Stars.

The source further tells the Graphic Sports that the company, with its headquarters in Nigeria, is asking for time to pay up, a development that is putting both the Premier clubs and the GFA on the edge.

While officials of the GFA and PLB would not comment on the issue when contacted, sources close to the GFA said the football governing body was not amused about the latest development, fearing an aggressive reaction from the clubs.

The source said the GFA and the Glo hierachy had had several discussions since the last season ended over the payment of the monies, with the payment schedule changing from time to time, with the final date set for August 10.

“However, now that that agreement has also not been honoured, it is up to the GFA to take a decision on what to do, but to tell the truth, it will come under intense pressure from the clubs, no doubt,” the source told the Graphic Sports.

The source further told this paper that the company’s relunctance to keep to the payment schedule stems from the fact that it is frustrated by its inability to start operations in Ghana.

Even though it is yet to start operations in Ghana, Glo has its plate full with several sponsorship deals in Ghana from sponsorsing showbiz icons as well but the most notable being the Premier League as well as the Black Stars.

Somewhere last May, there were media reports that Glo had threatened to abadon its plan to operate in Ghana due to the frustrations it was encountering in setting up.

Ironically, the problem of non-payment is not peculiar to Ghana as media reports in Nigeria also indicate that a meeting of the executive committee of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) is expected to take a decision next week on their relationship with Glo.

The NPL, according to the reports, will decide on new title sponsorship for the League after contract renewal talks with Glo broke down in Lagos.

Glo’s four-year deal with the NPL elapsed at the end of the current season and NPL sources say the company, which had the right of first refusal, failed to exercise those rights despite written reminders.

A meeting in Lagos on Tuesday failed to resolve pending issues, including outstanding sponsorship fee of over N900-million due to the League.

GFA Congress : Clubs To Reject Proposal


Emmanuel Adotey — Ghalca boss & Kwesi Nyantakyi — GFA PresidentAfter weeks of serious assessment of a Ghana Football Association (GFA)-proposed 20-club Premier League from a 16-club competition, the Congress is set to make a final decision when it meets for an extraordinary session tomorrow.

While there is not the likelihood a strong opposition to the proposal to finalise the modalities for the proposed reserve matches to be played as curtain raisers of the Premier League matches, the intention to increase the number of Premier League clubs will be strongly opposed, or possibly rejected, by the clubs.

Ahead of tomorrow’s congress, the Premier League clubs are expected to hold an emergency meeting under GHALCA’s unmbrella today to make a resolute decision to be presented at that meeting.

High on the agenda for today’s meeting is also the current state of the Globacom sponsorship of the Premier League.

Over the past days, Glo’s inability to honour its financial obligation which stands in arrears of about $3million has engaged the attention of most of the Premier clubs who are pushing for the issue to be raised at tomorrow’s Extraordinary Congress.

Mr Emmanuel Adotey, the Chairman of GHALCA, yesterday told the Graphic Sports that the clubs’ budgets had been badly affected by Glo’s inability to honour its financial obligation to the GFA for the sponsorship of the Premier League, and that should engage the attention of the stakeholders who will vote on the issues, rather than thinking of expanding the number of clubs to compete in the league.

Asked if the clubs were going to move for the abrogation of the Glo deal, Mr Adotey told the Graphic Sports “all the issues with regards to the Glo deal will be discussed at the meeting.”

He, however, denied speculations that the premier clubs were not ready to start the league on September 5 as scheduled by the Premier League Board (PLB) unless the monies owed them were paid.

“ It is true that most of the clubs have been badly affected by Glo’s non-payment as they had budgeted for their pre-season programmes with the money in mind but I don’t think that there have been talks to boycott the Premier League yet,” Mr Adotey further explained.

Ahead of the meeting, Kotoko’s Communications Director, Jarvis Peprah, tells Graphic Sports that the clubs should exercise patience as the GFA deals with the Glo challenge.

“ It is true that the clubs are suffering because the sponsorship monies have not been paid, but I think we should allow the GFA time to sort that out. There should be no rushed decisions,” Mr Peprah emphasised.

He however, expressed the hope that what was happening would be an eye-opener to the GFA in reaching such deals in the future while it must also serve as a wake-up call for the GFA to look for other sponsorship deals to enrich the Premier League.

Medeama Plot League Takeover
Wednesday, 18 August 2010


Moses Armah

Premier league debutants Medeama SC have already drummed home their intentions of replicating the feat of Aduana Stars who won the ultimate diadem in their rookie season.

The Tarkwa based club metamorphosed from Kessben FC a fortnight ago after months of speculations over a major takeover in the Ghanaian game and right after that, the owner and bankroller Moses Armah swiftly rolled out plans to make the club one of the powerhouses in the nation’s most cherished sport.

Bashiru Hayford, one of the most astute and meticulous tactical wizards in the country has been entrusted with the technical director role with a number of talented stars including veteran Joe Hendericks set to explode when the season gets underway in September.

“We are not in the league to add up to the numbers but we want to make a bold impression to repay the faith put in us by the coach,” Hendericks told DAILY GUIDE SPORTS.

He said the players will be guided by the experience garnered while playing in division one to execute their aim.

Meanwhile unconfirmed reports indicate that the hierarchy of the club is targeting Kudjoe Fianoo to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer whiles ex-Ghana international Robert Koffie is preferred to assist Bashiru Hayford, dashing the hopes of Augustine Adotey who was tipped to occupy that post.

In a related development, Medeama SC are unsure about their home venue for the upcoming season which kick-starts early next month.

Management of the Tarkwa-based club is struggling to meet the requirements of the Premier League Board after the Dompem Park venue was ruled out.

Options available to the club are an hour-and-half drive to the Essipong Stadium in Sekondi or to nearby Prestea.

“The PLB visited our home turf at Dompem and refused to sanction the place for us and that has left with other options for us to look at,” the club’s Chief Executive James Essilfie said.

“We are looking at either the Essipong stadium in Sekondi or Prestea for our home matches. The pressure from our fans to ensure we play our matches at home has been very incessant but at the moment our hands are tied.”

Medeama Sporting Club, situated at a mining town, might enjoy financial support from mining firms in the community.

Last year, the club were helped by Goldfields Limited, headline of the Ghana national team.
