The decision to cancel the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season will cost an estimated $2.2 million, according to the Ghana Football Association’s Communications Director, Henry Asante Twum.
On Tuesday, the GFA announced they were annulling the current campaign at the half way stage due to the coronavirus pandemic which has halted football activities in the country since March 15.
That decision is now expected to cost stakeholders well over 2 million dollars, according to the GFA.
“MTN made 1.1 million Ghana Cedis investment in the FA Cup so far. 800,000 cedis in cash and 300,000 cedis in products. StarTimes would have invested a little in excess of one million Ghana cedis of which they have paid some,” Asante stated on Accra-based Angel FM.
“The projections from NASCO for their products is estimated at $1.1.”
“The football association spent at least Gh¢6,000 on every match day. This money went into paying referees, cameramen and Venue Media Officers.”
The GFA is now expected to meet on July 9, 2020 to make a decision on when to resume football activities for next season.
