Ghanaian footballers, both retired and still active will now be able to visit match venues and watch matches free of charge, according to the Professional Footballers Association Of Ghana.
Players both retired and active have to pay before entering the many match venues in order to watch games in the league, FA Cup, Elite Cup as well as other national matches of all the various national teams.
But that according to the General Secretary of the PFAG, will change very soon as the data of all players is being collated for a special identification card to be issued, one that will ensure their free entry to the various match venues across the country.
“Life after football is not easy and we at the Professional Footballers Association Of Ghana believe that one of the ways we can help ourselves and our other colleague footballers to enjoy the game more is to have an initiative that will see them watch all matches at the various stadia, free of charge”, General Secretary of the PFAG, Tony Baffoe mentioned on Wednesday at the official launch of the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League.
“The process is not going to be easy but we have to start from somewhere and we are going to commence by issuing these cards to all registered Premier League players, then follow it up from there”, he added.
