The Ghana football Association after their Executive Council meeting on Tuesday have announced that Ghana Women’s Premier League clubs will pocket $160,000 from the Covid-19 fund this month.
The 16 top flight clubs will get $10,000 each from the fund, whiles the 72 women’s Division One Regional Clubs will share $60,000 among themselves.
This will be seen as huge relief for the clubs following the unexpected financial difficulties faced due to the impact of COVID-19.
The outbreak of the Coronovirus pandemic forced the Ghana Football Association to cancel the 2019/2020 football season due to the government measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
The decision forced clubs to release players from camp with some teams owing salaries while some also adopted pay cut to be able to remain financially strong.
