Clubs to be forced to emboss names behind jerseys

The Professional League Board (PLB) says it will ensure that names of players are boldly embossed at the back of jerseys for matches.

Several of Ghana’s Premier League clubs play official matches without the names and in some instances, no clarity of numbers at the back of jerseys.

Some clubs have even traded places on their jerseys reserved for such official embossments for sponsors making it extremely difficult for easy identification of players especially for journalists.

Premier League Board chairman, Welbeck Abra Appiah says his outfit will ensure that this is done for the second half of the season.

“At the start of the second round, we will ensure that all the clubs have the names of their players boldly written on the back of their jerseys,” he said.

“The clubs must ensure that this is done and that the names or logos of sponsors are not put at the back of their jerseys to the detriment of the name of the players.”

Meanwhile the Chairman of the Media Committee of the Ghana FA, Mr. Cudjoe Fianoo has lauded the Communications Director of the FA, Ibrahim Saanie Daara for organising a media summit where club communicators as well as venue media officers and the general sports media were educated on some of the media techniques of marketing their clubs and the local league.

Speaking at the closing moments of the function, CEO AshantiGold SC lauded the former BBC journalist and called on him to make it a point to be orgainizing such seminars and to extend the exercise to other parts of the country.
