The Communication officer for Ghana Football Association has explained that the Ghana’s International friendly game against Uzbekistan will not benefit Ghana financially.
Ghana’s home-based players are set to engage Uzbekistan in an international friendly game on Wednesday March 24, 2021
According to the renowned Communication officer, the FA will not benefit from the game financially because it could not produce the team A due to the African Cup of Nations qualifiers against South African and Sao Tome and Principe.
“Honestly speaking the request was for team A, that’s where you have power to negotiate how much you want.”
“Once you are not presenting your team A, your bargaining chip drops so we agreed that, they take care of all the cost (everything) and also produce the game for Ghanaians back home to watch.”
It’s not financially rewarding.” Henry Asante Twum told Oyerepa FM in Kumasi
Ghana Football Association decided to honour the match with a chunk of the home-based players who have been preparing in Accra for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as the Association intends to utilize fully, the opportunity in the March FIFA window with this useful exercise.
The team will also use the match as a dress rehearsal for the 2021 WAFU Cup of Nations in Nigeria and the upcoming CHAN qualifiers.
The team will depart Accra on Monday, March 22, play the game on Wednesday, March 24 and return on Friday, March 26, 2021.
