COVID-19 pandemic has impacted most sectors and the football industry is no exception.
All the 18 clubs in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) have faced their own difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Games are being played behind closed doors which is having a negative impact on the clubs financially.
The government of Ghana has decided to give each of the 18 Ghana Premier League clubs Gh¢ 100,000 as a support package for playing football behind closed doors because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A total amount of Gh¢1,800,000 has already been arranged with Gh¢ 900,000 already released according to a statement by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
The payments will come in two tranches of Gh¢50,000, with the first tranche expected to be paid to the clubs on Friday December 4, 2020.
Others clubs such as Division One, Women’s League etc will also receive financial support from Government in due course, a Ministry of Youth and Sports statement said.
