Coronavirus: Give us your stadiums for free – Attram appeals to government

Former Great Olympics coach Godwin Attram has suggested other means government can assist football clubs to cope with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The woes of Ghanaian clubs who are already dealing with the investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been worsened by the coronavirus outbreak which has brought their activities to a halt.

The FA has been engaging with the government and its agencies to secure some funds for the clubs who have been severely hit by the virus.

These discussions are yet to come to fruition as the government is yet to release funds or offer any form of support to the clubs.

Attram told GhanaWeb’s Joseph Adamafio that the FA must be innovative in its request to the government.

Attram who is for the continuation of the suspended season suggested other ways through which government can help the clubs.

Attram recommended free access to government-owned sporting facilities as a way to help clubs mitigate the impact of the virus.

“Government has a lot of things that they can support. Accra Sports Stadium is there and a lot of clubs pay money before they play. We can plead with the government that because of this pandemic which means we can play football behind closed doors he can always give us the stadium to play for free since we are not making money”.

“It's not only about giving money to the clubs. Sometimes we need to reason in certain ways. The government can do a lot of things for us like checking the players. The only thing is for you to assemble your players at one place and government can check them”, he said.
