National Sports Authority has disclosed that clubs would have to pay ¢60,000 for the stadium if the league returns behind closed doors.
Ghana’s football activities have been on hold due to the outbreak of the deadly pandemic, Covid-19.
There have been diverse opinions whether or not the league should resume.
Meanwhile, the FA has set ending of June as the deadline to decide the fate of the rest of the season.
One condition which is most likely to impede the resumption of the league is the amount of money that the clubs will pay before they can use the national stadia which was disclosed by the NSA boss, Professor Peter Twumasi on Kumasi FM.
“The conditions will change if the clubs have to play behind closed doors, the Covid-19 has changed the conditions already.
The NSA will continue to provide the facility for football but a condition will be set. If the NSA does not benefit from the usual gate proceeds, we will be forced to revert to the GHC60,000 charge per game to be able to observe all the COVID-19 protocols by providing sanitizers, water, soap, tissues, electricity and maintaining the social distancing protocols.
With this realistic charge,the NSA will have enough fund to also maintain the stadia.We provide services without getting the required fund.
The NSA has been constantly criticized for failing to maintain the stadia,with this charge we will be able to fix everything.”
The NSA is the major body which looks after sports facilities in Ghana and have a huge history of results in their area of responsibility.
