THE Brong Ahafo United Football Club (BA F/C) have appealed to citizens of the Brong Ahafo Region and other well-wishers to assist the club financially and materially to enable them make a meaningful impact in the upcoming national middle league.
United was one of the two clubs that qualified from their zone to participate in the middle league.
However, developments so far point to serious financial difficulties that could jeopardise their dream of qualifying for the premier division.
Club Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Charles Ntim a.k.a, Micky Charles, told Graphic Nsempa in Kumasi that, “I expect that Brong Ahafo citizens in the Ashanti Region for instance, would come in to help the club in our quest to return to the premiership.”
“There are a good number of Brong Ahafo citizens in the Ashanti Region and they must see reason in supporting the club at this critical moment,” he said.
He expressed regret about the absence of a premier side in Sunyani, the regional capital, and said the time had come for all to help United bounce back in style.
Mr Ntim said participation in the middle league demanded a lot of financial challenges and unless the people of the region came in to help, United would find it difficult to cope with the situation.
He explained that the management of football clubs today had become a difficult task and clubs that had financial difficulties could not live up to the task.
Mr Ntim stated that it was his aim since he assumed the chairmanship of the club to lead the club back to “where it belongs,”
He therefore called on the supporters of the club to give him maximum support to achieve that objective.
