The Ghana Premier League has been hit by poor stadium attendance in recent years with clubs struggling to rake in the needed revenues from gate proceeds to sustain the clubs.
Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are the two biggest clubs in Ghana that are yet to find solutions to the growing challenge of disinterest of the clubs’ games.
However, Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum, has opened up on why the league has been hit by poor patronage in recent years.
He claimed that Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are not doing proper player recruitment, leading to poor turnout in terms of supporters.
“For Kotoko and Hearts Of Oak,, they’re not doing well, gone are the days we used to have huge support for Kotoko in Kumasi.
“The fans are not coming to the stadium because Hearts and Kotoko are doing any proper player recruitment”, he told Guide Radio.
“When we talk about poor attendance at Ghana premier league matches, I think the clubs are not doing enough, especially Heart Of Oak and Kotoko. They are not engaging the fans”, he added.
When GFA guru’s intensionally want to destroy kotoko, you want us to come to the stadium so you can use referees to cheat us and take our money too. The game will continue to sink untill some of you repent about kotoko. Shame on you Henry.
