Bono and Ahafo Regions Football Association boss Raphael Gyambrah believes the Greater Accra and Ashanti regions should not have received the same number of balls with his outfit who have close to 400 clubs.
The Ghana Football Association ensured equal distribution of the 1000 PUMA footballs among the ten regional FAs in the country with each region receiving 100 footballs.
The Bono and Ahafo regions have close to 400 clubs made up of Division Two, Division Three, Juvenile and Women’s football clubs.
The Bono and Ahafo Regional FA is tasked to ensure availability and accessibility of the footballs to all clubs under his jurisdiction.
And, head of the football regulatory body in the region believes equitable distribution of the footballs would have helped his vision instead of the equal and even distribution among the footballs.
“All the 10 regional FAs are to share the 1000 PUMA balls and I can confirm that we have received our 100 PUMA balls. The only challenge we have now is that if you put Bono Ahafo into perspective per the data we have now we are close to about 400 clubs – that is Division Two, Division 3, Women’s football clubs and Juvenile football,” he told Richard Ntow Gyan on Nimdi3 FM’s Total Sports show.
He feels the clubs size of the Ashanti and Greater Accra regions should have seen them receive less than 100 balls.
“We are so close to 400. I don’t want to show disrespect to other regions but if you consider the number of clubs in Greater Accra and Ashanti regions I think this should have been distributed by numbers,” he explained.
