The General Secretary of the Ghana football association, Mr Prosper Harrison Addo has said that the football association promotes more league games than the clubs involved.

Contributing on the bruhaha surrounding the poor promotion and attendance at league venues, the General Secretary revealed that clubs have failed to do what needs to be done to promote league games even though the FA is doing their part.

“Attendance is not only about the promotion Betpawa wants to do. We had it in the past when a sponsor wanted to do something but since all sponsorship money had been given to the clubs it could not work.”

“So in this Betpawa deal, they decided to keep $1m for promotion and their own things, part of the money is what they use for the locker room bonus”, he told Kumasi based Akoma FM.

“Promotion is not for a particular group only. Clubs must promote their matches because they enjoy the majority share of the gate proceeds, and FA is giving a small amount.”

“Sometimes it seems FA promotes the games but the clubs do not. Clubs were told to do pre-match conference on Thursdays and Fridays, they started and stopped later, and should the FA apply the laws journalists will jump to the conclusion that we ( the FA) are against them”, he added.

The Ghana premier league has seen a massive decline in stadium attendance this season with the latest one being at the Accra sports stadium last weekend when Accra Hearts of Oak hosted Kumasi Asante Kotoko on matchday 20 of the ongoing betPawa Premier league as well as the 2023 President cup final.
