Ghana FA Spokesperson Henry Asante Twum blames officiating for poor stadium attendance

Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Henry Asante Twum believes officiating is a contributing factor to the poor stadium attendance recently.

There have been low turnouts recorded at some stadia over the weekend in the Ghana Premier League.

In an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, the Ghana FA PRO asserted officiating has contributed to the low turnouts at various stadia.

“If I say officiating is not part of the poor attendance challenges then I’m telling lies. It’s a major issue. The history of the game with Anas Number 12 exposé is still in the minds of people. That is also one of the problems.

“Referees in Ghana have one of the best capacity building programmes. At the end of the season we take referees and assistants through capacity building programmes. They are made to watch all the matches to identify the errors and the solutions”

“One thing that is also holding our game back is the poor nature of pitches”
