Published

on

One of the oldest Female teams in Ghana, Ashtown Ladies FC will reckon horns with City rivals Fabulous Ladies FC.

The Reds having lost their opener in the 2019/20 National Women’s League, will be hoping to redeem image in a regional derby when they come up against Fabulous Ladies at the Paa Joe Park.

The encounter is slated for Sunday, January 26, 2020 at exactly 3pm.

Ashtown Ladies FC after losing 5-0 to tough opponent Ampem Darkoa Ladies last week, have restructured the playing body to spell doom on Fabulous Ladies FC.

The clash which goes down to be one of the oldest rivalries in the Women’s Division, will be difficult for both clubs.

Ashtown Ladies despite playing at home in their second league fixture will not have it with ease, since Fabulous Ladies are also keen on recording first win of the season.

A very tough game and a rivalry match indeed.

Game kick-off is exactly 3pm local time in Ghanaô

The Ghana Football Association Is Set To Receive A COVID-19 Relief Package From The Confederation Of African Football.

Published

on

The Ghana FA will be receiving USD $185,200 as its share of the US $10.8 million package to be disbursed among member associations.

At the Africa’s football governing body’s meeting on Thursday (28 May 2020) via video-conference, the CAF Emergency Committee has approved the immediate distribution of financial grants to Member Associations (MA) to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 MA’s on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times.

“Due to the fast-spread of COVID-19, African MA’s have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders. CAF has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all MA’s can benefit during this difficult period,” said CAF President Ahmad Ahmad.

Also, CAF is assessing the opportunity of additional financial support to member association’s for the resumption and organisation of their domestic competitions.

Two weeks ago, CAF announced the distribution of USD 3.5 Million to the participants of the Interclub competitions for the 2019/20 season.

The two club competitions, Total CAF Champions League and Total CAF Confederation Cup, were suspended after the quarter-final matches due to COVID-19.

Meanwhile, CAF is monitoring the situation closely and working with the relevant authorities including the Wealth Health Organization (WHO), FIFA amongst others on the impact of the virus on the continent, and will announce developments to our competitions at the appropriate time

Published

on

The chairperson of the Ghana women’s Premier League committee, Madam Hillary Boaten has complained about the negative effects of COVID-19 as many female footballers seem vulnerable. 

Football activities in Ghana were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country as Ghana clocks close to 6000 cases of COVID-19.

The chairperson made it clear that the female clubs have not put themselves in a position that will enable them start their league.

She also stressed on the fact that female footballers in her league lack basic equipment to perform self training as this will go a long way to affect the future of female footballers.

“I felt so sad when I was told one of my girls has been impregnated during the lockdown period a player with very good promise and its so worrying. I will plead with my female footballers not to allow themselves to be used and dump” she told Adom FM’s Alex Kobina Stonne.

Madame Boeteng also  lamented on the ability of the female clubs to maintain the safety protocols even if the government lifts the ban on public gathering.

” Even if we decide to play under closed doors, how can the women’s league committee raise money for clubs especially when players are not allowed to even train on their own”, she concluded. 

June 30th has been set for football resumption in Ghana but the GFA is still in talks with the government to see how the set date might be possible.

That all players, officials, coaches,referees and match commissioners undergo mandatory test*
-The FA must arrange for them to be tested at various laboratories.They were identified into High and low risk groups
-The High risk group comprised of referees, match commissioners and technical persons who have close contact with players.

A plan that could see all matches for the remainder of the season played in empty stadiums
-The only persons to be admitted will be the press to cover the games and most of the matches shown live on TV.
-Those that can’t be shown live should be shown immediately after the matches not to make supporters miss the game so much.
