Football Clubs and members associated to them have been admonished to utilize the various bodies in the sport and its disciplinary mechanism rather than the use of the court of public opinion to address their grievances.
According to Osei Tutu Agyemang, Chairman of the Ashanti Regional Football Association, who was speaking at ARFA’s Ordinary Congress in Kumasi on Wednesday, matters should not be prejudiced even before they get to the relevant bodies.
“We should have faith in our setups. I appeal to all Clubs that they should address their grievances to the appropriate forums including the disciplinary committee instead of resorting to media outlets, which sometimes leads to problems,” the ARFA Chairman said.
Taking stock of their finances, though the ARFA’s financial report showed a profit turnover, Osei Tutu explained that they regional body are faced with difficulties in retrieving fines and dues from the clubs.
The ARFA Ordinary Congress also deliberated on how to contribute to the success of football in Ghana and measures to kick out hooliganism from football while promoting juvenile and women football in the region.
Delegates were also schooled on the electronic registration and club licensing system.
The ARFA ended the session by selecting former national team player Frimpong Manso, Samuel Otoo and Mallam Issah to join Osei Tutu Agyeman to represent the region at the up-coming Congress of the GFA.
