The National Sports Authority (NSA) has given the green light for late kick offs in this season’s Ghana Premier League (GPL).
A statement from the Public Relations Department of the NSA said it has put in place measures in accordance with the recommendations made by the Okudjeto Commission to meet the conditions of playing in the evening.
“In line with the implementation of the recommendations made by the Okudjeto Commission on the May 9 stadium disaster in 2001, among other measures put in place with regard to security, exit points, widening of gates, enhanced security, enhanced ambulance, health services, etc.
“Similarly, we are implementing same measures in our facilities nationwide, especially through renovation of Cape Coast, Kumasi, Tamale and Essipun stadiums to allow for certain approved matches to be played under flood lights.”
“This we hope will help the ‘bring back the love’ campaign embarked upon by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).-GNA
