Concerned Fans of Ghana Football, the convener of the #SaveGHFootball #WherelsTheLove movement, has announced its intention to organize a protest on Wednesday, 14th February 2024.
The movement aims to address the evident collapse of the football ecosystem in Ghana and advocate for comprehensive reforms to restore the game to its former glory.
The Concerned Fans of Ghana Football expresses dissatisfaction with the Ghana Football Association's (GFA) approach to football development and the lack of a coherent policy to guide the growth of the sport.
The deteriorating state of the Ghana Premier League, the underwhelming performances of national teams at tournaments, and the disproportionate allocation of resources to the Black Stars at the expense of overall development are also areas of concern.
The demonstration, themed #SaveGHFootball #WherelsTheLove, will petition President H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to:
- Halt the GFA's search for a new coach
- Dissolve the committee tasked with finding a new coach
- Initiate reforms at the GFA
- Prompt the Ministry of Youth and Sports to formulate a comprehensive policy in collaboration with stakeholders to facilitate positive change in football development.
In addition to petitioning for reforms, the protest aims to raise awareness among Ghanaians and educate the public about the significance of developing football for the greater good.
Concerned Fans of Ghana Football will release detailed guidelines in the coming days to ensure a peaceful and orderly protest.
The movement plans to release extensive guidelines in the coming days to ensure a peaceful and orderly protest. The official hashtags for the campaign are #SaveGHFootball and #WherelsTheLove.
