The Ghana Football Association has assured that it will not hesitate to take action in ensuring strict adherence to the COVID 19 protocols as well as its approved match day protocols.
This comes after his President Akufo-Addo charged the National Sports Authority (NSA) and the Ghana football Association (GFA) to ensure compliance with an earlier directive to admit 25 percent of people at various stadia across the country.
“…the association has taken notice of the violations that took place at the Accra Sports Stadium during the Matchday 11 Ghana Premier League game between Accra Hearts of Oak SC and Accra Great Olympics FC. The GFA condemns without any reservations the violations of the GFA Matchday protocols despite plans put in place. Actions may be taken should there be any further violations of the GFA Matchday Protocols”
Speaking in a media engagement, General Secretary of the GFA, Prosper Harrison Addo urged football fans who go to the stadium, to take responsibility of themselves and observe all COVID 19 safety protocols
“…I’ll plead again to all soccer loving fans who go to our various stadia that when you wear your mask and you enter, please don’t take it off and then when you go in too, ensure that there is social distancing. So when you sit, make sure there is space between you and the next person.”
He also added “…the stewards will come round to urge you to move, please when they come corporate with them. It’s for the safety of all of us. We can only ask for more if we do this right. I know a lot of people are doing it right but a few so far are giving us cause for concern”
