However, they’ve been serious questions about the standard of the stadium that hosted the match.
Ndoum stadium is a 50,000 capacity,
The stadium was one of the two venues (along with the Cape Coast Sports Stadium) of the 2017 West African Football Union (WAFU) Cup of Nations, which was held in September 2017.
Meanwhile, the video looked like a Sunday league been played in a forest.
Ghana football association marketing and sponsorship committee, Ghana Premier league management committee couldn’t ensure proper matchday settings
When Ghana Premier league games are played in Accra sports stadium, you will see a lot of advertising panels around the pitch to help in enhancing coverage which boost mileage for the brands
In Elmina sharks’ case, only one panel was at the venue, meanwhile, GFA has few sponsors for the league, so one would’ve thought the league managers will ensure that everything is in order before the game
But they didn’t, obviously sleeping on their job.
The video has gathered more than 100 million viewers across the world, but the only benefit is the beauty and the technique of Bissue but not the few sponsors sponsoring the league
With such numbers, the FA would’ve used it to make a case in getting new sponsors for the league.
