Communications Director at the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum has thrown more light on the usage pattern of the newly acquired communication gadgets for referees in the country.
The GFA announced the acquisition of 10 sets of referee communication gadgets which were purported to be for the Ghana Premier League.
However, speaking to Mohammed Mutaka on Diamond FM’s Yelivuhi Saha program on Wednesday, Henry Asante Twum said the equipment would be used for the other GFA sanctioned competitions as and when the opportunity arises.
Henry Asante went further to mention top liners in the Division One League such as Tamale City vs Real Tamale United (RTU) as games where provision can be made for the equipment to be used if the game falls on a Saturday. He added the FA Cup (both men and women), the National Women’s League especially the play-off at the end of the season and other top liners in the Division One League across the country are games the equipment can be made available for use.
The acquisition of the equipment is seen as a boost for Ghanaian referees who officiate in the Premier League as these gadgets are expected to aid effective communication during games in the Ghanaian top flight.
The communication gadgets as stated by the GFA communication will be used by all four match officials on match days across the nine league centres for effective communication.
