Ghana FA executive Addo begs national government's mercy on football clubs

Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Committee member Samuel Anim Addo has stated the national government would have to come to the aid of football clubs to drive the sport.

Teams, especially in the elite division, have always cried about the financial challenge of running such an outfit, and about the lack of support from the national government.

The complaints have worsened by the suspension of competitions due to the coronavirus pandemic, even more by the snub of sports in a Government of Ghana stimulus package for businesses to alleviate the impact of Covid-19.

“If we are going to always raise funds from our own pockets - the little we’ve earned from our private businesses - into the game, then we are in for trouble," Addo said, as reported by Ghana Web.
