Wa All Stars boss calls on government to support the local league

Published on: 28 January 2018

Chief Executive Officer of former Ghana Premier League Champions, Oduro Nyarko has called on government to support the domestic league. 

The Ghana Premier League has struggled in attracting sponsorship, and has been without a headline sponsor in the past two season.

According to Oduro Nyarko, who admits the standard of the league is dropping, the government must consider pumping in some money in the local league.

“I think we all agree that the attractiveness of our league is dwindling due to the influx of player exodus because right now, our league lacks quality players who will convey supporters to our various stadia."

“But many measures can be put in place to assuage this backward movement and one of such measures is getting the Ghana government on board to inject money into the league so that clubs can pay their players well to serve as a bait for them to play the local league for a long time before leaving for abroad," he exclusively told ATL FM of Cape Coast.

The Ghana Premier League is set o begin on February 11th as the clubs prepare for the new campaign. Aduana Stars are champions after emerging victors last season.
