GFA Head office

The Ghana Football Association will later today February 4, 2020, hold separate meetings with executives of the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) and the Match Commissioners Association.

Both meetings to be held at 12 p.m and 2 p.m respectively will mainly focus on improving operations.

The meeting will also focus on direct payment to Referees (subject to deduction of dues which will go to RAG) in accordance with provisions of FIFA Regulations on refereeing for Member Associations.

“For referees in particular, the GFA and RAG have held previous meetings, and tomorrow’s meeting will aim to finalise fees for all levels for payment’, a statement by the FA said.

The GFA intends to reduce payment schedules to two matchdays and later to a game. The new payment strategy is for the GFA to make payments directly to Referees after every four matchdays.

All things being equal, the GFA will be strategizing to ultimately pay referees and match commissioners ahead of their assigned matches.
