Clubs Owners Urged To Be Abreast With Values

Germany v Ghana: Group G - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi    Nyantakyi has encouraged owners of football sides to embrace the working documents that protect the game in order to safeguard their finances. Speaking on the second day of forum for Club administrators in the Western Region last Wednesday in Sekondi, Nyantakyi tasked people responsible for Clubs in all tiers of the Ghana football to ensure that their investments are protected by working within the standard rules set by the FA. “Clubs must be well versed in the regulations of the game in order to protect their investments,” the GFA President said at the seminar organised by the Western Region Football Association. “Decisions not in consonance with the rules and regulations could lead to decisions against the Club that will affect investments made. Clubs make huge investments in players, technical persons and participation in competitions, such capital injections do not need to suffer from our failure to abide by the rules. “We have to be aware of the dos and donts of the game and ensure that whatever investments we make do not go waste through actions that go contrary to the binding documents of the game.” On the on-going sittings of the Commission of Inquiry into the Black Stars in the Brazil 2014 World Cup elsewhere, Nyantakyi said he was prepared to appear before the 2014 World Cup commission despite the reservation by FIFA about the terms of reference of the body. Much of the commission’s hearing hinges on the appearance of the GFA and despite the worries about FIFA’s concerns, Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi says he is ready to appear. “I’ve not been invited and if am invited I will attend,” Nyantakyi said. This comes as a welcome news for the commission which has so far not indicated its intention of inviting the Ghana FA following the FIFA letter warning them about the remit of the probe. In another development,Minister of Youth and Sports Mahama Ayariga has returned from Turkey where he held discussions with football officials on funding local leagues. He said his recent visit to Turkey was to discuss means of raising sponsorship for the local game. He posted on his Facebook page: “On my trip to Turkey this week, I visited one of their best known football clubs, Fenerbache S.K. My meeting with some of the top officials was very insightful. We explored how local businesses invest in local sports and the incentives thereof. Ultimately, these discussions will help improve funding for our local leagues.”
