Churches Must Get Involved In Promoting Football – Saani Daara

Spokesperson for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Ibrahim Saani Daara has urged churches in the country to establish football teams to participate in the league.

Saani argue that this will go a long way to create jobs for the youth and also promote the interest of football in Ghana.

“Churches must also have football clubs playing in the league. This will create a sort of extra-curricular activity for the churches. 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”, he revealed on Asempa FM.

“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”, he continued.

Saani is of the opinion that this idea, when taken up will help improve people’s interest in the local league.

Many football administrators and pundits have embraced this idea, and have vowed to support of any move to make this idea work.
