The newly formed Western Regional Sports Committee under the auspices of the Western Regional Coordinating Council has initiated a one day strategic workshop for sports in the Western Region themed “Awakening the Sport Economy in the Western Region”.
The summit which is slated for Friday, May 31, 2019 has met huge applauds with mostly every club throwing everything on the line for its proper-fruition.
It’s a massive step and bold one to admit the past had its hardships and the future which has shown clearly better promptings has to be backed with hardwork and practical strategies.
According to Sekondi Hasaacas Football Club’s 15th Chairman, in the 88 years history of the the Giants of the West, it’s a welcoming and thought-provoking exercise come Friday at the WRCC Residential Conference Room where almost everyone invited has a role to play in determining the future.
“The economic perspective of our sport hasn’t been fully harnessed, we(clubs) have all contributed massively to this failure, this is an opportunity to rekindle and rewrite the wrongs of the past.
“This program must touch on our very inability to create streams of income for the growth of the sport and also the deteriorating nature of the infrastructures we have in the region.
“Much is expected from everyone involved. From clubs owners, management members, corporate bodies who through the massive numbers(followers/supporters) of these clubs can up their reach have to contribute to this new inspiration” – Club Chairman Samuel Arbuah talking to Club Media.
