All roads lead to the Independence Stadium tomorrow where the nation’s football fraternity will converge to discuss the future of the game which has recently been hit by crises and questions on how to effectively develop it.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports, MoYS, which called the meeting, said it wants to once again generate debate as well as gauge the mood of the country’s football stakeholders and ordinary citizens on far-reaching proposals aimed at changing the nature and format of football as it is known in this country. MoYS said it has hired a consultant to preside over this important meeting and collate the views and comments of the participants on the proposals.
Among other things, MoYS wants to know what would be the ramifications of changing the nation’s football league from the current format which has so far failed to attract much desired fanfare and spectator commitment.
In its place, MoYS is proposing the institutionalisation of the Super Nawettan as a national league or creating a super league.
These topics have already sparked talking points around the country and MoYS has invited an array of experts, the common people and even the neutrals to spare time for the debate on Saturday.
Though not mentioned as a topic, the issue of governance in football which has been hit by crises recently would no doubt be appetising for some speakers who believed the division in the football family is among the ills frustrating the drive to advance the game here. The forum opens in the morning at the Independence Stadium Saturday.]]>
