Following the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) reveal on how it would be distributing the $1.8 million it will be receiving from the FIFA & CAF COVID19 relief fund, some members of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) have expressed their disagreement with the $2,000 the association will be receiving from said fund.
Speaking in an interview with Oyerepa FM, GHALCA President, Kudjoe Fianoo, revealed that the association will be engaging the GFA for further clarification on how the fund was disbursed.
“I have heard the agitations of our members even though we are yet to receive the money with some members questioning why GHALCA is getting $2000 but that notwithstanding, looking at how unhappy our members are, we will engage the FA Prez to find out if there’s a possibility to do broader consultations at least they should give us the opportunity to also share our thoughts.”
The board member of Accra Great Olympics, however, revealed his confidence that the GFA will listen to the grievances of the clubs. “There is the need for the broader consultations because on a lighter side if care is not taken, this can result in third world war.”
“Kurt’s administration is a listening one and I am confident they will listen but should that fail, we will support whatever the members will say”, he added
FIFA announced $1.5 billion COVID19 relief plan to help it’s Member Associations (MA) through the ongoing crisis with each association set to receive $1 million, with an additional $500,000 grant specifically for women’s football.
CAF also announced a total of $10.8 Million will be transferred to the federation’s 54 MA’s on the continent with each MA to receive $300,000 from the fund.
