Ghanaian clubs want a share of the $500,000 package FIFA has paid the Ghana Football Association to shore up revenue losses due to the coronavirus pandemic.
FIFA paid each member association $500,000 to cover administrative and operational costs, an early release of part of their FIFA Forward benefits.
But clubs in Ghana want a share of the money, with Bechem United’s Chief Executive, Nana Kwaku Darlington claiming the money belongs to clubs.
“The GFA will see how strong we are if they fail to assist the clubs with part of the money from FIFA.
“We (Clubs) are not ready for any loan from the GFA because the FIFA money belongs to us, they (FIFA) are bringing the money because of us. The FA must share the money to the clubs than using for their operational cost,” Nana Darlington told OTEC FM
“You (GFA) went to the government to solicit funds for us (Clubs) due to the Pandemic and thankfully FIFA has given you money, why don’t you give it to us?” he quizzed
“I know even clubs all over the world are celebrating because of FIFA’s money, so, what prevents you (GFA) from sharing the FIFA’s money to us. They (GFA) will see how strong we (Clubs) are if they fail to share the FIFA money.” he concluded.
