Photos of the medals the Ghana Football Association gave Accra Hearts of Oak, the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League, and FA Cup winners have popped up on social media and it’s totally embarrassing.

The Phobians won the Ghana Premier League last month and also sailed through to the FA Cup finals which they left the Accra Sports Stadium on the happy side after emerging supreme in a penalty shoot-out.

However, it appears the GFA have embarrassed themselves after giving the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup winners a medal which looks like a key holder despite having all the funds they need.

The Ghana Premier League is 65 years old but the organizers, GFA still do things like they’re in the 20th century which goes a long way to say football in Ghana might still take a decade to get better.

A look at the winners’ medal has left many Ghanaians and football fans angry as they wonder why the GFA would give the Premier League and FA Cup winners such a low-quality medal which is not even good enough for inter-school competitions.

From the GFA congress held last year September, the GFA President takes home GH¢12,000 as salary and GH¢1,600 as sitting allowance – His travel allowance is $500 per day for international assignments – On domestic assignments, the GFA President gets GH¢600 per day.

The GFA president pockets all these amounts of money to deliver a quality league but it’s obvious nothing has really improved from the new administration when it comes to improving the standard of the Ghana Premier League.

In the UK where they don’t mine gold, the English Premier League awards winners of the league medals made of silver, which are 2.25in (5.7cm) in diameter which was imprinted with the Barclays Premier League logo which the players hung around their necks with the ribbons made of the team colors.

From what I’ve gathered, the bases of the EPL trophy are made from malachite, a semi-precious stone found in Africa, with the green color of the opaque stone representing the field of play but in Africa, Ghana where Gold is abundant, we still give players a piece of crap as winners medal.

GFA should do better because this is simply embarrassing.
