Positive kickoff for World Cup media organisation

By Keir Radnedge
MOSCOW, June 23, 2018 - So far, so good as far as media facilities are concerned at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.Every World Cup is an increasingly complex technological and logistical exercise as the electronic possibilities multiply even while it becomes impossible to squeeze any more journalists into the media tribunes and commentary positions.Thus far journalists have registered few complaints with AIPS since initial teething issues had been resolved.The local organisers had promised to learn some lessons from the Confederations Cup last year. Hence all the desks in stadia and ...

From perception to hard core evidence, the curious case of corruption in Ghana football

By William Ezah
ACCRA, June 22, 2018 - Until June 6, 2018, corruption was a matter of perception in Ghana, as suspicions of referees taking bribes, match fixing, influence in player selection into the national teams, creation of fake agencies for sponsorship deals, undercutting of sponsorship funds, among others, were mere cases of allegations with no hard core evidence to back them up.It took two years of painstaking investigations by ace journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to demystify the perception by digging up hard core evidence to prove that, the above ills indeed existed in the administration of Ghana football.It ...

Messi goes missing as Argentina teeter on the World Cup brink

By Keir Radnedge
