COVID-19: Clubs Will Suffer If Matches Are Played Behind Closed Doors – GHALCA Chairman

Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Kudjoe Fianoo admits that clubs will suffer financially if games are played behind closed doors.

Football is yet to return after it was suspended on March 15 because of the coronavirus outbreak.

With the resumption of European football, administrators in the football fraternity have called for the return of th 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.

But the former Ashgold CEO believes it will be difficult for clubs to get enough funds to test players before the football return.

According to him, the decision to compare ourselves to the European on their decision to resume football must not be tolerated.

“Our major source of revenue is playing at home,” he told Kumasi based Otec FM.

“Clubs will suffer if we decide to play matches behind closed doors because there is no sponsorship for our league. We had a meeting with the GFA to see how we will go about it.

“Which team in Ghana will get that $80 – $100 to text a player every time like what the Europeans are doing?” he quizzed.

“We shouldn’t compare ourselves to the Europeans because we are a 3rd world country not like them who have advanced and have more advantages than we do,” he concluded.
