Accra, May 6, GNA - The Professional League Board (PLB) has in consultation with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) embarked on an upward review of the face value of Premier league tickets to five thousand cedis with immediate effect.
A statement signed by Mr Kwaku Ampim Darko, Deputy General Secretary of the GFA and copied to the GNA Sports said the upward adjustment was necessitated by the request of match officials for an increment in their officiating allowances, transport fares and hotel bills.
The statement added that the adjustment is also due to the rising cost of running the Premier League clubs generally, the high cost of transportation and hotel bills incurred by the clubs to honour league matches.
It said the review of the face value of the tickets is therefore to help ease the burden of the clubs in their operations as well as all other stakeholders.
The statement therefore appealed to fans and the general public to cooperate with all stakeholders to ensure the smooth implementation of the rates.
The statement said the PLB would endeavour to refresh all ticket holders with Coca Cola drinks at the gates.
