Henry Asante Twum, the Ghana Football Association Communications Director has hinted the FIFA Relief Fund could play a crucial role in determining the fate of the season.

Since mid-March, association football together with other contact sports in the country have been halted as a measure of curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Discussions about the destiny of the current season has given birth to divergent opinions most especially with the state not ready to lift the ban on contact sports. However, those that have argued against the restart of football have lamented about the struggling state of clubs financially, citing the return might complicate the already dire conditions bedevilling the football sides.

Speaking about the imminent Covid-19 relief fund set to be doled out by the world governing body, Henry Asante Twum suggested:

“FIFA’s relief fund could play a role as the EXCO decides on the future of the league season tomorrow but it may not be the main reason to influence the decision of the EXCO,” he told Eugene Adu Poku ‘Striker’ on Mabesh TV.

With the Ghana Football Association giving herself June 30 as deadline to come out with a decision on the fate of football in the country. It is apparent the season might be cancelled.

FIFA is set to release $1.5 million to her member associations to ease off the financial burden sparked by the global pandemic on the sport world-wide.
