Reduce GPL matchday charges to improve stadium attendance – Kwabena Agyapong

Former Ghanaian sports broadcaster Kwabena Agyapong wants clubs in the Ghana Premier League to reduce stadium charges at the matchday venues during their games due to the economic struggles.

The Ghana league, in recent years, has had reduced stadium attendance and viewership and stakeholders have been in discussions for solutions.

For Kwabena Agyapong, clubs can improve attendance at their stadia by slashing matchday rates.

“I think perhaps we should work with the clubs to also reduce the cost. Filling a stadium like Kumasi, with 50,000 people paying Ghc5.00 is better than making it Ghc20.00 and just a thousand or two thousand people if you watch the mathematics,” the politician told Luv FM.

“Times are hard, with all respect those who watch football are people who struggle but they love the game.

“They have to travel and now we know transport fares are high, they have to eat and so therefore the ticket prices we have to look at it, and then encourage them [fans] and let’s mount a deliberate campaign,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, 2022/23 Ghana Premier League enters match-week 28 at various stadia.

Aduana FC leads the standings with 47 points.
