The Ghana Football Association is set to receive a US$ 185,200 grant from the Confederation of African Football to help ease the financial challenges that have come up as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This was after CAF Emergency Committee’s approved the immediate distribution of financial aid to Member Associations (MA) to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the disease.
The release of the money is set to financially cushion the various federations against challenges they might encounter as a result of the Coronavirus bringing football activities to a standstill.
In all, a total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 member associations on the continent.
”Due to the fast-spread of COVID-19, African MA’s have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders. CAF has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all MA’s can benefit during this difficult period,” said CAF President Ahmad Ahmad.
