He also asked the Minister of Youth and Sports to engage the managers of the Rugby Team and the National Sports Authority to work together and allow the Rugby team train at the national sports stadiums as “it is a public facility that belongs to the people of Ghana.”

YEN.com.gh earlier reported a passionate man by name Ataa Abbey Odenke has been a Hearts of Oak supporter for 50 years, hardly missing any match since 1970.

Perhaps, the most surprising bit of the story is that the passionate supporter has been with a physical impairment which makes it a great chore navigating stadia every time there is a match.
