Wilson Arthur Wilson Arthur

Chairman of the MTN FA Cup committee, Wilson Arthur is advocating for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to allow the 18-club Division One League competition to go autonomous.

This follows an announcement from the country's football governing body indicating that they have started the process to shrink the 48 Division One League competition to an 18-club competition.

While many continue to oppose the move, the owner of Skyy FC Wilson Arthur says he believes it will be very helpful if the new format of the competition is handed over to an independent body to run.

"If I was GFA president, I would sell the franchise for autonomous elite Division One League", the experienced football administrator told Skyy FM.

He continued, "Anyone who buys the franchise can make recoup his investment after 5 years".

Meanwhile, Proud United owner Jojo Duncan is opposing the reduction in the number of participating clubs in Division One after accusing the Ghana FA of trying to copy from South Africa.
