We need to be innovative in funding our football – GFA Prez

Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kurt Okraku has called on the fraternity to ‘think outside the box’ in funding the activities of the sport in the country.

Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah earlier this week revealed that the expenditure per match behind closed doors will cost GH¢60,000.

Speaking in response to the extended COVID-19 ban on football, the FA Chief admitted the local game could not enjoy ease in the restrictions partly due to concerns about funds.

“Obviously it all comes down to money because if you want to embark on an elaborate educational campaign, it’s about money.

“If you have to get access to PPEs, it’s about money.

“Clubs may have to play behind closed doors and that means money will be lost.

“The National Sports Authority will have to prepare stadia for us and that also raises a question about money.

“Money plays a big part and that is the gospel truth. The football economy is small and very robust. Therefore, it is a challenging period when we need to think outside the box and make a decision that is best for Ghana.”

Currently, sports disciplines like badminton, tennis among others have resumed as football in Ghana waits to get the nod.
