The new system will see a departure from the manual filing of match reports to a digital one. Also pre-match meetings which usually serve as the avenue for match coordinators to inspect the jerseys of clubs has been replaced with a CMS that will showcase the colours of jerseys to be used by the clubs ahead of a particular game.
Speaking at a press briefing held at the headquarters of the Ghana Football Association on Monday, March 26, the Communications Director of the FA, Saanie Daara expressed optimism that the digital system will enhance professionalism and transparency in the league.
“We want to congratulate the media and everyone for the success we have made on the league so far. These successes can be pointed to the works the media has done in collaboration with us. One of key things we do now is a departure from what we did in the past”.
“The new system ensures that jerseys are presented to the clubs way before the match coordination meetings. This will help avert situations where clubs complain about others using wrong jersey colours. It will help us make the game a lot more professional and a lot more formal”, Saanie said.
The GFA continues its pursuit of a dispute-free league with new reforms. The association earlier this year met in Cape Coast to deliberate on improving the standard of the league.
The Ghana Premier League which resumed two weeks ago after a protracted league battle has enjoyed incredible patronage since it bounced back.
Attendance at various league centres has been encouraging and social media platforms have also been flooded with conversations about the league.
