NCC was not consulted in ‘Phobia for Life Project’- Hearts Supporters Chief

Hearts of Oak Supporters Chief, Elvis Herman Hesse has blamed the club's inability to generate a lot of funds from the Phobia 4 life project because the Supporters leadership were not consulted.

The “Phobia 4 Life Project” was aimed at mobilizing fans of the club to one common platform, and also mobilize funds to enhance the finances of the club.

Fans were supposed to pay a one-time registration fee of GHS 2.

Hearts of Oak announced that it had accrued GHc 6,500 from the Phobia4life project with just some few fans contributing to the project. This is below the club’s fan base, projected to be over 1 million.

According to Herman Hesse, the project was undertaken solely by management without any support from the supporter’s leadership.

“The NCC was not consulted in this project and I can say that is why it resulted to the low patronage. We even tried to reach out to the Board to be considered for the project but there was no response”, he told Happy FM.

He also explained that the club was not able to generate a lot of money because most of the revenue came through virtual platforms instead of the chapters.

“We could have done a proper mobilization with the Chapters but most of the people who contributed to the project did so on the virtual platform that is on WhatsApp”.

“The NCC could have used its platform to mobilize people across the nation because the fan base is more than a million.

He added that management should reach out to the supporter's wing for any project if they want to succeed.
