Head of Volta Football, Daniel Agbogah on Monday afternoon led a delegation to the office of the Ho Municipal Chief Executive to formally introduce the Ho Municipal Football Association Chairman and his Vice.

The call came as part of the Volta Regional Football Association's plan to help all the 9 footballing district to get the needed support and attention from the various M/DCEs in the region.

Daniel Agbogah in his address said, the Municipal Assembly is regarded as one of the major stakeholders in the region hence cannot be left out in the attempt to develop the game.

" We see the Municipal Assembly as a major stakeholder in sports and we can't neglect you in our quest to develop the game"

The Ho Municipal Football Association has been without an office space since its inception, this has therefore rendered the association handicapped in delivering it's mandate as an association responsible for overseeing Division Three and Juvenile Football.

The Regional Football Association Chairman however appealed to the MCE for an office space. This he believe will help the Ho Municipal Football Association to discharge their work effectively. Other appealed raised was targeted to the creation of game centers and the presence of security officials  during FA organised matches.

The MCE for Ho, Hon. Prosper Pi-Bansah was delighted to meet the high profiled delegation in his office, he ceased the opportunity to urge the football association body to bring back the glorious days as football was mainly the source of entertainment on a Sunday afternoon.

" I want to urge you to bring back the good old days. The joy and excitement the game brings to us was immeasurable. We will want to see those days back" he stressed.

Hon. Pi Bansah in admittance, believe the major problem of the growth of the game in the past was players selling matches, this he said does not yield a good result and thus limiting the growth of the game.

" The players have been a major problem to the growth of the game in the past. Imagine players taking monies from opponents before games, this will obviously not be competitive. If this is not checked, club owners will not be encouraged to form football clubs, thereby limiting the growth of the game"

The MCE pledged to support the growth of football in the municipality as it is a game loved by all.
