Mr. Armah further instructed clubs to make available coaches and players’ contracts as part of the registration.
“Coach’s contract must be signed by the coach and the team. Copy of his/her License must be submitted along with the contract; and the player and the team must sign Player’s contracts. Three copies of each player’s contract (The LFA, Club and the Player) must be submitted to the department,” Mr Armah noted.
