Ghana Premier League has improved – Sports Minister

Hon. Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, the Minister of Youth and Sports has noted that 2015-16 Ghana Premier League has improved and it is a testimony that the local game has a bright future.

The domestic league lacked patronage in past few years, but this year has been different. Supporters have turned out in their numbers to throw their weight behind their respective clubs and former GBC broadcast journalist has been impressed.

Mr. Nii Lantey Vanderpuye bemoans the current canker — hooliganism in the game and has tasked the football governing body to weed out the violence in our stadia.

“I am a keen follower of our game and I have always said that this year’s league seem to give us much more attraction and hope for the future than we’ve seen in the past,” the MP for Odododiodio Constituency said in a meeting with GHALCA Executives.

“Attendance has improved and the quality of the game is also improving. So I thought that was going for us to have a very smooth and interesting league that will be to the benefit of the league clubs and to all of us.

“But all over sudden, this issue of violence has the ability of affecting attendance and also making look a bit untidy,” he noted.

“The FA and other bodies mandated to see our football grow should put in all efforts to give us freedom so that we can all go to the stadia without fear,” he stated.
