The Safety and Security Committee of the GFA has yesterday March 4, 2021 dispatched all necessary training manuals for the training of stewards to clubs in the Ghana Premier League, National Division One League, Women’s Premier League and Regional Football Associations.
This is in line with the directives of the Executive Council to play all GFA sanctioned matches behind closed doors for four weeks, clubs within this period were tasked to train match day stewards to assist in the safety and security operations at match venues especially in ensuring adherence to the GFA match day Covid-19 protocols.
