Ghana FA spokesman reveals $2.2 million loss due to 2019/20 football annulment

Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Henry Asante Twum has disclosed that his outfit has lost a staggering amount of $2.2 million due to the cancellation of the 2019/20 season.

On Tuesday, the Executive Council of the Ghana FA cancelled the 2019/20 campaign amid the coronavirus crisis which has ravaged sporting activities in the country since March.

“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 date for the 2020/21 football season will be announced by the Ghana Football Association in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold will represent the nation at next season's CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup respectively.
