Failure Of Clubs Among Several Reasons Affecting Attendance – Ibrahim Sannie Daara

Ibrahim Sannie Daara, a former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has pointed out the poor performance of Ghana Premier League (GPL) clubs as a major factor in low patronage of the league.

His comments come in the wake of criticisms leveled at the FA president Kurt Okraku who had early stated that it is the responsibility of clubs to get their supporters to the stadia.

Attendance at Ghana league matches has been on the low side, particularly for league giants Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.

Sannie Daara gave his backing for Kurt Okraku in a Twitter post.

He said Kurt has spoken nothing but the TRUTH. The failure of clubs is among the several factors affecting attendance at some GPL stadia.

Daara further asserted that if Hearts & Kotoko recruit the best players, pay them well, market their matches, and have good academies they will be strong, and competitive continentally and also get other clubs in Ghana to step up to the plate. League matches are promoted by using players and coaches and these guys are controlled by the clubs and not the GFA.

He concluded that we need a proper forum to address this but it is sad that consistently we the media push all blame to the GFA when the exact culprits are walking free.”
