Prize Money for GPL winner is peanut - Frank Nelson

Board Member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Frank Nelson has stressed that the prize money for the 2016/2017 Ghana Premier League winners Aduana Stars is small.

Nelson who also doubles as a GFA Executive Committee member reiterated that the GHC 30,000 money is just a token.

“The GHC 30,000 prize money for the GPL winner is small, It is peanut. The amount is nothing, for instance if Hearts of Oak travel in and out to North the flight is GHC 24,000 so in case we win the league and we are given such amount is no money but that is what the GFA have.”

“Maybe in future something must be done so that the money is increased in order to help the league champions,”

Aduana Stars won the 2016/2017 Ghana Premier League with 57 points.
