The Ghana Football Association will educate Clubs and the media on match-fixing before the start of the 2017/18 season.
Addressing the media on Wednesday at the final day of the maiden FA summit in Cape Coast, President Kwesi Nyantakyi revealed his outfit are putting in measures to employ legal experts who will educate the various Clubs on the negatives of match-fixing.
There have been several purported scandalous acts in Ghana football which is blighting the image of the game in the country.
Some players and officials of Clubs have come out with various revelations of alleged match-fixing which seemed to be a huge worry to the football governing body in the country.
Nyantakyi wants to end the outrages in the game by setting up personnel to create awareness on the undesirable act.
“We realized there have been several match-fixing claims and allegations in our game, we had several reports about match fixing in the just ended season, therefore we wants to educate the media and the various Clubs and administrators on match-fixing before the start of the new season,” he said.
“By so doing we have put in place measures to employ experts who will take the media and the Clubs through and educate them on match-fixing.”
The Ethics Committee of the Ghana Football Association are still settling cases about match-fixing reports brought to their doorstep before the end of the season.
The FA will hence probe into these matters before the start of the new season which is expected to begin in February next year.
