Clubs in the National Division One League have been advised by the chairman of the Club Licensing Board, Dr. Kwame Baah-Nuakoh, to stay in the Division One for a while if they can’t meet licensure regulations in the Ghana Premier League.

The Club Licensing Board was established to ensure clubs have met all the safety standards before the start of each football season.

As the new football season is proposed to start in October, the former Kotoko board member and his institution are ready to implement the regulations to the latter.

Dr. Nuakoh lamented the craze to own clubs when two club chairmen could have come together to form a single club and run it professionally.

“We have gotten to a point where we would have to advise those who don’t have the means to run a club in the premier league professionally to wait in the lower divisions until they can”, he told Happy FM.

“Everyone wants to be called chairman so instead of merging with other clubs to have one big professional club running effectively.

“We have a lot of ‘small’ clubs running under various individuals who cannot meet the standards. So, it makes it difficult to implement the licensing rules.”

The Club Licensing Board has the responsibility of vetting the license application of clubs to ensure compliance with legal, administrative, finance, technical, medical, and security requirements of the provisions of the GFA Statutes and the GFA Club Licensing Regulations before issuing licenses to clubs.
