Bechem United request for change in Ghana Premier League fixtures next season

Published on: 18 July 2023

Bechem United have written to the Ghana Football Association to prepare the Ghana Premier League fixtures to favour the clubs next season.

In an interview with Kessben FM, Francis Addae, who is the Director of Operations of Bechem United asserted clubs run at a loss because of the unfavorable fixtures and has therefor entreated the FA to reconsider it ahead of the 2023/24 season.

“We have realized the way the fixtures are done is not helping us. It is also not helping the game. So, we spoke to Lord Zico (General Manager of the club) and have officially written to the federation if some changes could be made,” Addae told Kessben Sports.

He added: “One of our major problems is the transportation system in the country. Trains are not working and air flights can go to all parts of the country. For instance, if Bechem travel Tamale, they should be made to play all their matches in the region before they return. The same can be done for clubs that come to the Bono region. This has been done in countries like Egypt, Sudan and Tanzania.

“If we all can take this into consideration and make some changes, it will help to reduce the stress on the boys and they will deliver.”
