Passion for Ghana football still alive – Mustapha Ussif

Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, has asserted that enthusiasm among Ghanaian football fans for the Ghana Premier League remains strong.

Addressing attendees at a thought leadership event hosted by Joy Sports, Ussif emphasised that the decreasing attendance figures in recent seasons do not indicate a decrease in the nation’s passion for the sport.

Drawing attention to the significant turnouts witnessed during matches between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics just two years ago, Ussif pointed out that the zeal and passion for football among Ghanaians remain as vibrant as ever.

“I refuse to believe that Ghanaians have suddenly lost interest in football. No, the passion is still alive and vibrant. We must, therefore, delve deeper into the underlying factors responsible for this decline and take decisive actions to revive our beloved league,” he stated.

“Two years ago, the fierce rivalry between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics drew an overwhelming crowd. Yet, we find ourselves grappling with a disheartening decline in attendance at recent fixtures.” Mustapha Ussif added.
