The Northern Regional Football Association (NRFA) Chairman Alhaj Abu Hassan Mahamadu Rhyzo has urged clubs in the region to take the ongoing player registration exercise serious.
He said registering players onto the FIFA connect system does not only give clubs control of their players but also has accrued benefits in future transfers.
Alhaj Rhyzo who paid a working visit to the Tamale Metro Football Association registration centre at the Kaladan Stadium advised clubs with lots of players to loan or release some to other teams to ensure fair competition when the leagues start.
“If you are a team with so many players, it is only proper to release those you think would be deemed surplus to requirement to other clubs that might need their services. This would give the players the opportunity to have playing time that would further their development and ensure competition among clubs” the NRFA Boss stated.
The registration commenced on Thursday, October 08, 2020, capturing over 500 players with only 12 clubs out of 24. The rest are expected to register and it is expected that over 1000 players would register in the Tamale Metro alone.
Alhaj Rhyzo commended the Executive Committee of the Tamale Metro Football Association for their continuous efforts to grow football in the Metropolis and beyond.
He supported the association with GHS 200 to assist in the provision of lunch for the registration officials.
The Tamale Metro FA Chairman Abdul Aziz Abdallah popularly known as Ramzy thanked the NRFA Chairman for his support to the MFA.
He pledged their unflinching backing and collaboration to Alhaji Rhyzo for the forward march of the game of football in the region.
