The Central Regional Football Association Chairman, Robert Otieku Duncan has urged the government, football enthusiasts and the general public to develop a keen interest in local leagues.
According to Mr. Duncan, with the league in session, the government could contribute to its promotion by enacting a law that would prevent TV stations from telecasting European-based games at the expense of local matches.
He added that local leagues, through the appropriate mechanisms under the leadership of the Youth and Sports Ministry, could take paths similar to how foreign leagues have been branded.
Robert Duncan also noted that the Regional Football Associations (RFAs) play an important role in the country by churning out most of the players produced in Ghana.
The coasts, second division, and third divisions are where players are produced and not from clubs, he said.
He also implored the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku, to be more proactive in the affairs of the RFAs.
