The agreement was reached on Tuesday when Executives of the GFA, led by President, Kurt Okraku called on the Management of the state-owned transport operator at their headquarters in Accra.
GFA Executive Council member, Nana Sarfo Oduro and Referees Manager, Alex Kotey accompanied Kurt Okraku to the meeting aimed at courting support for referees in the Premier League, National Division One League and the Women’s Premier League.
Intercity STC Coaches Limited were represented by Managing Director, Nana Akomea, Deputy Managing Director (Operations), Kwabena Sintim-Aboagye and other senior management members.
"This is our contribution towards the development of football in our country," said Managing Director, Nana Akomea.
The deal will ensure that the cost burden on our referees is lessened besides traveling on safe, comfortable Intercity STC Coaches which has wi-fi connectivity.
