The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has extended invitations to all Safety and Security officers for the 18 Premier League clubs to undergo a one-day training programme at the GFA headquarters in Accra.
The one day training is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, November 05, 2020 focused on training the enlisted officials on all safety and security protocols clubs need to observe when the football season officially commences on Friday, November 13.
The training, according to the GFA, “is part of preparations towards the smooth take-off of the 2020/2021 football season”.
The training is split into two parts; theory and practical lessons, to be spearheaded by the Chairman of the safety and security committee, D.S.P Emmanuel Asante.
One of the areas to feature in the training will be the relationship between ball boys and the players before, during and after football matches. The FA earlier stated, that ball boys who flout any protocols of the covid-19 to be set out by the FA for safety reasons, will not be penalised personally, but the home team of the particular match will suffer a penalty.
Thursday’s training is therefore not only compulsory for all premier league clubs, but will also enlightened the safety officials on methods of adhering to all covid-19 protocols on match days, and ensuring all other stakeholders do same.
