GFA Instruct Lawyers to sue its critics
The Ghana Football Association has instructed its Lawyers to institute legal action against persons who defame the Association, its officials, products and destroy the Black Stars brand as well as media platforms used to do same.
The Association is of the belief that suing persons who criticize the work of the Association will provide them the opportunity to provide the needed evidence to back their allegations.
This was made known in a statement shared via the Football Association’s Website.
After Black Stars failed outing at the 2022 World Cup, several media personalities and Ghanaians have been bitter.
There have been complaints and calls for the Ghana Football Association to do better in order to make Ghana Football Great again.

PRESS STATEMENT: DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS AGAINST GFA AND THE BLACK STARS BRAND
Following the exit of the senior national team, the Black Stars from the on-going FIFA World Cup, Qatar 2022, the Ghana Football Association issued a statement dated December 2, 2022 (same day of the third match). We apologised to the general public and all stakeholders and also indicated that we will continue with the positive lessons going into the future.
The GFA has since kept an open mind and continue to listen and receive comments, suggestions, and ideas from well-meaning Ghanaians both home and abroad for the improvement of the team.
Unfortunately, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has noticed that a few persons are deliberately maligning and defaming the GFA and the Black Stars brand in an attempt to manufacture a non-existent scandal about the team.
While the Association will continue to encourage feedback and opinions (devoid of insults, personal attacks, and brand devaluation), the destruction of the brand from deliberate lies, misinformation and defamatory comments must be curbed, as the Black Stars remains a global brand that unites all Ghanaians.
The Ghana Football Association has therefore instructed its lawyers to institute legal action against persons who defame the Association, its officials, products and destroy the Black Stars brand as well as the media platforms used to do same.
The legal forum will provide the opportunity for these persons to bring any evidence to substantiate their allegations.
The Association will continue to encourage opinions and comments being expressed aimed at improving the team and the brand.
Once again, the Association wishes to express its profound gratitude to all persons and stakeholders for their positive suggestions and ideas towards the improvement of the team and the Football Association.
