Desperate times call for desperate measures. Kwesi Nyantakyi, President of the Ghanaian FA, has reportedly suggested that Ghana should encourage more fans to attend domestic league matches by the presence of “sexy ladies.”
“Me, I have said this thing over and over again…we must let sexy ladies enter our stadia and the men will readily follow them into the stadium to watch games,” Nyantakyi told Montie FM, via Ghana Web.
“Most of these men when they hear that beautiful girls are coming to the stadium today, they’ll all jump and follow them to the stadium…and they are going there purposely to see the ladies.”
I remember there was one match the we brought some beautiful girls who were in nice jeans to the stadium and the girls started walking around the stadium and come and see the hysteria it created in the stands. The men in the stands went into frenzy and when the ladies waved at them, come and see how jubilant they (men) were. And so we must try and use all these tricks to boost attendance at the stadium.
Domestic clubs in Ghana are struggling financially as most fans would prefer to watch Premier League football on television than attend local matches, the report continues.
