GHALCA organised competitions ticketing chairman, Nana Oduro Sarfo has revealed that government of Ghana owes the association about GHS 47, 000.00 for organising the President Cup.
GHALCA, the mother body of all league clubs in the country, organises the country’s annual republic day dubbed the President Cup.
Of late, Ghanaian football fans are given the opportunity to watch the match for free and government bares the cost.
However, government has not honoured their promises made to GHALCA to open the gates to football fans for free whilst they bare the cost.
“We have played three president cup matches at the Accra Sports Stadium and anytime we finish the government owes us. The government has always been with the excuse that of people won’t come to the venue to watch the match if they are charged and that, it will be bad for the government people don’t come, but they will end up not paying us for not charging,” the former Berekum Chelsea Chief executive officer told sportscrusader.com
“I am the ticketing committee chairman and i can tell you government owes us huge sums of money. We are owed about GHS 47,000 and it will not happen under my administration.” He added.
Nana Oduro Sarfo, who has confirmed his candidature to dislodge Alhaji Raji to the chairmanship position in April’s elections also revealed that of he’s given mandate to lead the association, he will play his first president cup match in Kumasi.
“I am thinking of playing my first president cup at the Baba Yara sports stadium in Kumasi if I am given the mandate.” He said.
GHALCA will go to congress on Tuesday February 16 to fix a date for April’s elections.
