The Executive Council of the Eastern Regional Football Association today held a meeting with key stakeholders in the game to discuss critical issues ahead of the start of the 2019/2020 Domestic League Season.
Issue’s discussed at the meeting included; officiating, officiating fees, integrity issues , security and match venues as well as ensuring that all stakeholders abide by the Laws governing the Game.
Prior to the start of the new season scheduled for the 20th to 23rd of March 2020 all stakeholders such as referees, DFA Chairmen, Match Commissioners and Women’s League executive’s have a huge role to play if the campaign will be successful and without of scandals.
Though there has not been active football for the past years, it’s on record that the RFA still owes Referees and Match Commissioners for work done some seasons ago and the Association is ready to settle the debt.
The meeting was presided over by the Regional Football Association Chairman, Mr Linford Boadu Asamoah and his Executive Council.
In a bid to show that the Women’s football is in good shape, the DFA Chairmen have been encouraged by the Regional Chairman to submit three Women clubs to the RFA at the end of the season.
However, the Women’s League and Eastern Cup competition will be set for the ladies to help them get much playing time and be proactive at both the regional and premier league level.
“From the Regional FA, we are going to provide women clubs with balls and also pay their officiating fees. At the end of the season, there will be awards night for women clubs”Mr Asamoah indicated.
At the close of the meeting, the District FA chairmen were tasked to help develop grassroot and women football in their various districts.
The DFA Chairmen were further encouraged by the executive council to ensure that they put to use the rules and regulations at the district level so that it can attract many people to invest in football.
