Kwasi Nyantakyi hopeful of a successful 2017/18 GPL season

Ghana Football Association president Kwasi Nyantakyi is hopeful of a successful Ghana Premier League season following the start of the competition over the weekend.

This year's league delayed following a court case involving the FA and Accra Great Olympics.

In a media interaction on Monday, Nyantakyi noted some of the new measures put in place to ensure we enjoy a wonderful season.

"The first thing i need to draw your attention to is the establishment of the match command center-this center is a new initiative that came out of the Cape Coast summit and it is a center that have been put in place to act as a liaison between league venues and the GFA," he said

"It is also an operation or an emergency center to respond to problems at league venues and to monitor performances of officials and seek to organisational issues.

"We also have venue coordinators and these people assist the match officials to generate their report. During pre match meetings we have realised that it is a good opportunity to use this avenue to control the cases of unqualified players and litigation."
