Kotoko raise concerns over advance ticket sales

 

Asante Kotoko have expressed serious concerns over the sale of advanced tickets for Premier League games.

The Premier League Board are currently administering the novelty on a pilot basis but faced their biggest challenge during the weekend’s clash between Kotoko and All Stars.

The slow pace of the validation process of already bought tickets ensured the game started with a virtually empty stadium with most of the fans held up in long queues at the gates.

And officials of the Porcupine Warriors say it defeats the main motive of the advanced ticket sales which is to maximize attendance at the various stadia.

“We believe the initiative is a very laudable one by the PLB but clearly there are some serious challenges with the project,” Kotoko’s Public and Supporters Relations Manager Listowel Bukarson told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“The validation process of already bought tickets at the gates were so slow that the match started before a very poor crowd.

“Most of the fans were robbed of seeing the early stages of the game and I don’t think it is good enough so we’d edge the PLB to implore more advanced means in the discharge of this laudable initiative.”

The Premier League Board however will like to take all these concerns on board during the pilot base to be addressed before it is conclusively passed at the end of the current campaign.
