The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Ibrahim Saanie Daara has appealed to churches to establish clubs in Ghana.
Mr. Saanie Daara believes religious groups investing in football will help the development of the local league.
According to the communication’s chief, there are more talented players in the various churches which have been hindered because of their duties.
“Churches must also have football clubs playing in the league,” Sannie told Asempa FM.
“This will create a sort of extra-curricular activity for the churches in Ghana.”
“And if church members know their respective teams will be playing on a Saturday or Sunday after church service, they will troop to the various stadia to watch these games.
“Churches are doing well in the areas of health, education and other areas, but they should be urged to venture into sporting activities, because these churches have footballers, aspiring footballers, athletes, etc. as members, so they must take this idea seriously.”
