The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Assocation, Prosper Harrison Addo has defended the FAs decision to allocate some money to GHALCA and the senior national team from the COVID-19 relief fund.
GHALCA, the welfare representatives of clubs in Ghana, are set to receive $2000 dollars from the fund which totals $1.8 million. The senior national team will also receive $15,000.
The GFA have come under intense criticism following the decision to allocate some of the monies to those two bodies.
However in an interview with Happy FM, Prosper gave an explanation as to why the GFA took that decision.
“GHALCA has also been affected by the absence of football because they also receive some percentage or amount from gate proceeds, player transfers and others thus the money given them is for their administrative duties”, he told Happy FM.
“The monies allocated to the national teams is because the GFA has some camping cost it takes care of.
“The monies allocated to the national team will be used to pay for feeding, accommodation, tournaments and other technical and administrative support at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence.”
The GFA will disburse $1 million in July and the remainder will come in January 2021.
