30 games in Division 1 too much for the players – Ex Co member


Kwak AyiExecutive committee member of the Ghana Football Association Kweku Eyiah

Executive committee member of the Ghana Football Association Kweku Eyiah says playing 30 games in the just ended division one league took its toll on the players.

The 2014/2015 division one league was a hugely successful one with Techiman City, Dreams FC and Ebusua Dwarfs all climbing to Ghana’s premier league.

Breakthrough players like Bright Lukman and Asokwa Deportivo’s Joel Fiamenyeh all gained recognition after their stellar performance.

But Kweku Eyiah says some players found it difficult to cope with playing 30 games.

“One important thing in division one that we forget is that playing 30 games in division one is a novelty,” Eyiah told Accra based Happy-FM

“First it was six games and then we moved it to eight then to twelve before we moved it to sixteen.”

“After that if you were able to get to middle league you play a total of seventeen games.”

“Now we have to play almost double which is 30 games and that is a lot and some players found it very tiring.”
