GFA fulfils grassroot referee fees support pledge to RFAs

The 10 Regional Football Associations (RFAs) have received a boost after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) released GHc300,000 to support the payment of officiating fees in the respective league competitions.

This payment is in fulfilment of GFA President Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku’s pledge at the 29th Ordinary Session of the GFA Congress in Kumasi on Monday, July 10, 2023.

The amount of money has been disbursed to all RFAs to support the cost of officiating in their respective ongoing competitions.

The disbursement was done taking into consideration the number of clubs in each region, the number of matches to be played, and the cost of refereeing in each region to ensure some form of equity.

In this regard, the Greater Accra football region received an amount of GHc50,000, while other football regions received GHc30,000 to support the cost of officiating in their regions.

The Upper West and Upper East football regions received GHc20,000 each. The RFAs and their DFAs are in charge of clubs in Division Two, Division Three, Regional Women’s Division One, and Colts U13, 15, and U17 leagues.

Payment of officiating fees is a great challenge for clubs that compete in the Regional Leagues.

The GFA is also investing an amount of GHc200,000 into the training of the Catch Them Young Referees to bring them to an optimum level and make them ready for the Regional League competitions.

It would be recalled that the GFA has already provided whistles, referee assistant flags, and red and yellow cards to the RFAs to help with the Catch Them Young Refereeing Policy. The Association will also distribute referee uniforms to the RFAs in the coming week for Catch Them Young Referees.
