Ghana FA to hold pre-Nations Cup seminar for the media

Ghana FA to hold pre-Nations Cup seminar for the media

Ghana journalists tobe schooled on Nations Cup rules

The Ghana FA will hold a media seminar for journalists who will be covering the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Some Ghanaian journalists run into some difficulties in the last AFCON in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Some of the difficulties were attributed to the relative lack of knowledge of the competition rules.

The Ghana FA also looks to execute its limited access policy of the Black Stars team in South Africa.

This therefore means, journalists will not have the 24 hour access to the team camp it was accorded in the last CAN.

The football association thus wants to educate members of the media who will be covering the tournament on all these issues to curb the difficulties associated with such huge competitions.

“There is going to be a media training program,” Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi told a media briefing on Thursday.

“We will have a session with the media where the media will be taking through all the rules of the competition.

“This is so that you don’t go the South Africa and suddenly become wanting.

“We don’t want Ghanaian journalists to go there and then conduct themselves as one of the best group of professionals who will be in South Africa because you will be going there with knowledge.”

Ghana will be based in Port Elizabeth at least until the end of the group stage.

The Black Stars are drawn in Group B alongside Mali, Niger and DR Congo.
