President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, says the Ghana Premier League still has a lot of popularity despite contrary claims.

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Kwame Asiamah

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Kwame Asiamah says he is yet to discover the existence of a "mafia" at the ministry after over a year in office.

According to Mr Asiamah who took his turn at the Meet The Press series today (March 13, 2018) in Accra, he has only met staff willing to advance the cause of sports development at the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS).

He said he has received maximum support from all his staff and their conduct has left him very proud.

Accra Hearts of Oak lost a friendly game against Elmina Sharks in their new home ground the Cape Coast stadium. The game was a ding dong affair for both teams. Benjamin Arthur and Ebo Mends of Sharks were shown a yellow card in the 16th and 38th minutes.

Sharks created a lot of chances compared to Hearts but unsuccessful in converting to goals leading to a goalless first-half.

Newly promoted sides to the Ghana Premier League, Dreams FC, Karela FC and Techiman Eleven Wonders registered mixed results on the opening day of the 2017/2018 campaign over the weekend.

In what could be described as baptism of fire for the trio, none of them was able to register what would have been a dream start to the campaign.

Debutants Karela lost 1:0 to Medeama SC in Tarkwa, in what could be described as a baptism of fire, while their fellow debutants Eleven Wonders came from behind to draw 1:1 with Accra Hearts of Oak in Techiman. 

The Goal scorer of the friendly match between Hearts of Oak and Elmina Sharks, Benjamin Tweneboah says he is happy to score against Hearts in the friendly. He stated that they [Elmina Sharks] were determined to win the game at all cost against the Phobians.

“I’m happy, very happy now but I will give thanks to Almighty God”, he said.
