Bechem United appeal to Ghana FA to assist clubs to improve facilities at league centers

Published on: 16 March 2023

Communications Officer of Bechem United, Emmanuel Gyasi Atuahene has appealed to the leadership of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to assist clubs competing in the top flight to good centres.

Speaking in an interview, Atuahene admitted that clubs need to do more to draw fans to league centres and the provision of quality infrastructure is one of them.

He also called on the country's football governing body to assist them financially.

“When you don’t have that kind of sponsorship it makes it quite difficult and the rate of development becomes quite slow… It’s high time the GFA takes a critical look at getting us better sponsorship so that it will be able to help the clubs improve the standard of facilities they have at the various stadia," he told Citi Sports.

Ahead of the start of the 2022-2023 season the GFA struck a sponsorship deal with sports betting firm betPawa, with an annual sum of $2 million agreed on.

However, $455,000 went to the clubs with each club receiving just $25, 278 annually.

Bechem United currently ranks third in the 18-team league standings and will take on Karela United in the matchday 22 games this weekend.
