Fidel Deke, GNA

Accra, July 13, GNA –
Mr Solomon Lartey, Managing Director of Activa International Insurance Company
Limited, has proposed the establishment of an effective insurance system for
football clubs in the country. saying this will safeguard them for the future.

Mr. Lartey was
commiserating with officials and players of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, who were
involved in an accident at Nkawkaw, in the Eastern Region, after their mid-week
league game against Inter Allies at the El-Wak Stadium on Wednesday.

He said though the
incident was a sad one, it was about time Ghanaian clubs consider insurance
policies as part of their planning processes for each season.

In an interview with
the GNA Sports on Friday, Mr Lartey, said, the Ghana Football Association (GFA)
must ensure the appropriate insurance policies at the beginning of each season,
taking into consideration the fact that clubs travel across the length and
breath of the country each year to honour their matches.

He said insurance
package will provide clubs with the needed financial security, in times of
difficulties, as the companies will be on hand to support accident victims and
also players who suffer from injuries during football matches.

He said, Ghanaian
clubs must consider Personal Accident Insurance policy (PAI), since it covers
death, injuries and temporary disability, as it ensures players and clubs are
financially secured in times of difficulties.

He added that the
policy provides the cost of treating victims including death, adding that, in
cases where the players end up disabled after an accident it would also cover
their cost of treatment as well.
