Get your own stadium – NSA Boss tells GFA, GPL Clubs

Get your own stadium - NSA Boss tells GFA, GPL Clubs

The Director-General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Prof Peter Twumasi has urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Ghanaian top-flight sides to build and manage their own stadium.

This comes after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rejected the Cape Coast Stadium to host Medeama’s Champions League group stage games.

According to Prof Twumasi, if the GFA build their own stadium, it will reduce the over reliance on state-owned facilities.

“I think it’s high time the GFA built their own stadium,” Prof Twumasi told Graphic Sports.

“For example, the World Cup money that we get should be used for some of these things — building a stadium.

“We can use the World Cup money to design a stadium purposely for football matters and the federation (GFA) will handle that.”

On the clubs, he added, “Not only the GFA, but all the clubs playing in the Premiership must own stadiums or venues good enough to host a match.

“If I have my way, every club that plays in the Premier League must demonstrate that they have their own stadium. If they don’t have the money they can team up with the banks for loans to be deducted from their gate proceeds for a number of years.”
