GHALCA is adamant its novelty pre-season competition has the full blessing of the Ghana Football Association.

This follows GHANAsoccernet.com’s revelation that the competition now christened the Glo G8 Cup has not been duly sanctioned by the football association.

According to the Ghana FA statutes, only a Top 4 pre-season tournament remains recognized and therefore anything contrary would need approval by Congress (the highest decision making body) or an express approval by the Executive Committee.

These requirements however emerged not fulfilled after checks by GHANAsoccernet.com which therefore makes the maiden competition liable to a court injunction.

It also means disciplinary issues which emerges from the competition cannot be referred to the Ghana FA for adjudication.

However Interim GHALCA chairman, Alhaji Ali Raji interprets the presence of officials of the Ghana FA at the competition’s media launch as a full endorsement.

“You saw the GFA President (Kwasi Nyantakyi) here didn’t you?” he quizzed rhetorically to GHANAsoccernet.com when asked.

“I believe you also saw the other Executive Committee members here?

“Since day 1 the competition has been sanctioned, there is no way we can play a sanction-less competition.”
