Organizers considering changing kick-off times for FirsTrust G6 matches after floodlight failure

LISTEN JAN 8, 2016

Organizers are considering changing kick-off times for the FirsTrust GHALCA 6 tournament after the opening day was disrupted by floodlight hitches.

The second match on Tuesday was delayed as both Hearts of Oak and Aduana Stars had to wait for close to an hour after the lights went off on the 13th minute.

Despite the match ending successfully, GHALCA and their sponsors agreed on changing kick-off times for rest of the tournament matches to avoid subsequent power problems.

First matches were to kick-off at 4pm and second matches to kick-off at 6:30pm everyday but due to inconsistent power at Essipong Stadium first matches of the tournament have been confirmed to kick-off at 1:30pm and the other at 3:45pm.

The change in kick-off times have affected following matches of the FirsTrust GHALCA Six tournament:

Day 2 Match 1 - 8th January, 2016
Asante Kotoko vs. Berekum Chelsea
Kick-off at 1:30pm
Day 2 Match 2 - 8th January, 2016

Day 3 Match 1 - 9th January, 2016

Day 3 Match 2 - 9th January, 2016
