GHALCA Chairman Kudjoe Fianoo has touted his achievements after taking over the mantle a year ago.
Mr Fianoo said, officials of GHALCA in the past looked like ‘goro boys’ because the office they worked in did not represent that of a serious association. However, plans and policies adopted by his team have changed that negative narrative, he posited.
According to him, ”this executive is looking forward to leave behind a solid legacy so GHALCA will be attractive to the corporate world and make it easier for sponsors to put in their resources to sponsor their activities. He recounted how staff of GHALCA had to struggle in working due to the lack of an office space.
‘’It was a shame for us to be moving to offices of our potential sponsors because we did not have an office but the current leadership of GHALCA has done it best to change this and rebrand and reposition GHALCA.’’
Meanwhile, he has also touched on the upcoming GHALCA Tournament slated for this month. Kudjoe Fianoo met all team owners over a possible upcoming competition and explains it comprises of thirty clubs with fifteen from the Division One and the other fifteen from the Ghana Premier League.
The tournament requires a home and away encounter between two teams starting from first round known to be the knockout stage.
The final eight clubs that will remain in the competition would be divided into two with four basing in Kumasi for their matches and other four in Cape Coast, he said.
The Chairman stated clearly about the prize money for the winner of the Tournament, which is an amount of GHC40, 000 and the runner up, takes home an amount of GHC10, 000.
