Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku, has promised improved officiating for the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League campaign.
He made the statement during the launch of the betPawa GPL on Friday, September 2, at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Some decisions by match officials in last season’s domestic competition were subjected to controversies, typically in the Super Clash between Asante Kotoko and Hearts.
The centre referee Joseph Kenny Padi was suspended until the end of the season after wrongfully awarding Kotoko a penalty on Matchday 24.
Okraku is optimistic about a good showing by match officials in the impending season.
“Officiating has always been on the lips of everybody but officiating will improve this year. All the 45 officials centre and lines[linesmen] are camped in Prampram undergoing training,” he said.
“We believe they will be ready for the new season and the FA will offer them every opportunity to excel. Those who don’t excel, they know, usually what will happen.”
The FA Boss also revealed an increment in the compensation of referees for the season with the amount undisclosed.
The Premier League begins on September 9, 2022.
