President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku has pleaded with government to give more attention to football due to the enormous positive impact it has on the economy.
“Our executive council having realized that we have not been given the needed attention, we decided to form a five-member Committee to put a document together to tell us the contribution of football towards the national economy and this is a process we have started," he told 3Sports.
Mr Okraku stressed that he believes football has what it takes to make Ghana a stronger brand.
“We believe that we deserve more attention, we believe that we belong to a special group that has the capacity to reposition the brand called Ghana in a much stronger way,” he indicated.
Ahead of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season, government has pledged to foot the bills of the Covid-19 test for all the 18 Premier League clubs.
