Sekondi Hasaacas Chief Esson Kicks Against 18-Team National Division One League

Sekondi Hasaacas CEO Paapa Kwesi Esson says reducing the National Division One League teams from 48 to 18 clubs will ‘kill grassroots talents’.

The Ghana FA Executive Council has constituted a five member ad-hoc committee for the implementation of the transitional provision on the number of participating clubs in the National Division One League.

This is in compliance with Article 81(6) of the GFA Statutes 2019 which says: ”The number of delegates representing the Division One League shall be reduced to 18 (down from the current 48) at the latest by the end of the second football season following the adoption of these Statues.”

Esson believes it is a huge mistake to change the current format which had clubs from all the geographical areas of Ghana.

”It doesn’t make any sense to me to reduce the current 48 Division One team League to 18 teams. Reducing the teams will adversely affect grassroots talents in the interior part of our country,” he told Akoma FM.

The five-member member committee will be made up of three persons from the Division One League and two persons nominated by the Ghana FA.
