The top-flight clubs will be laughing to the bank after government’s decision to provide financial support
Ghana Premier League clubs will be receiving a relief package from government very soon to cushion them for the 2020/21 season, AshesGyamera.com understands.
Following government’s decision to only allow Premier League games to be played behind closed doors due to Coronavirus disease, clubs began to vehemently claim that they will be struggling to match their expenses since gate proceeds formed major part of their sources of income.
Therefore, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ghana FA and Ghana League Clubs Association have been able to negotiate with the seat of government to provide financial relief of GH₵100,000 cedis each of all the sixteen clubs.
AshesGyamera.com also understands that all 48 Division One League clubs that will partake in the 2020/21 season will likely receive half of the amount (GH₵50,000) before or after their season kicks off.
Ghana Premier League began last weekend with eight games apart from Aduana Stars’ home fixture against Hearts of Oak which was postponed due to COVID-19 cases the latter had in their camp.
