Akufo-Addo supports football clubs with GHS900K


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has authorised the Ministry of Youth and Sports to release an amount of GHS900,000.00 as first tranche of payment to support 18 premier league clubs to offset some of their expenses in this era of COVID-19 pandemic.

Each club is to receive an amount of GHS50,000.

This has become necessary due to the directive by the government to all premier league matches to be played behind closed doors to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“Other clubs such as Division one, National Women’s League, CAF Champion’s League Representative and CAF Confederation Cup Representative will also receive some financial support from the government in due course,” a statement released by the sports ministry stated.
