The football association has open the lid on contract signed between them and the Telecommunication giants
Ghana Football Association has shed lights on the contractual agreement between them and Scancom PLC (MTN Ghana) following threats of boycotting this weekend FA Cup games by some clubs.
According to the agitated clubs, they wanted to know the details of the new deal and how clubs stand to benefit as the principal players at the end of the season.
“The Ghana Football Association wishes to state that the Association has not signed a new agreement with Scancom PLC (MTN Ghana) for the sponsorship of its FA Cup competition,” a GFA statement read.
“It would be recalled that in 2017, the Association renewed its agreement with MTN Ghana for a further three (3) seasons at a total Sponsorship Fee of GHc1,100,000.00 per year (that is GHc800,000 cash and 310,000 MTN Recharge cards/products).
“It would also be recalled that it was during the middle of the agreement that the consequences of the #12 expose’ truncated the football season. Thus, the agreement was held up until the resumption of the MTN FA Cup by the Association this season.
“It must be noted that it is this same agreement between GFA and MTN Ghana with the same terms and conditions that the current GFA is utilizing this season due to the holdup caused by the #12 expose’.”
“The Association wishes to inform all its members and stakeholders to disregard all the fake news in circulation about the signing of a new contract by the GFA and MTN.
“To conclude, the GFA wishes to reiterate that it has not signed a new contract with MTN Ghana and that the moment a new contract is signed with any sponsor, the Association shall communicate the details to its members in line with the its transparency policies.”
