GHALCA demands clarity over SuperSports money



Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) is demanding clarity over funds provided by SuperSports as sponsorship for the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

According to GHALCA, they are well informed that the Ghana Football Association had received the full sponsorship amount estimated at $550,000 from the broadcast company, but each club has received only $10,000 but Kudjoe Fianoo believes the issues need to be effectively resolved.

“We started the league without sponsorship, so attention shifted to whatever revenue that would be coming out of the league. Last season, we were treating the SuperSport sponsorship as complementary because we had a title sponsor. But as at when it came, we were just adding up.
“Here we are this year. We started with zero sponsorship, so every attention went into it, however small it was. We checked our balances last year and we got $19,500 as each club’s share of the SuperSport sponsorship deal.

“At a point in time, the clubs were invited to a meeting where we all agreed that the FA should go for a loan of $10,000 and $3,000 for officiating to cushion all competing clubs. So, in my books, as against last season that I had $19,500, I only have $10,000 standing in books as revenue from SuperSport. But our checks do indicate that the full amount has hit the account of the GFA.” He added.
