GHALCA boss Raji fears football in Ghana will collapse due to lack of funds

GHALCA boss Alhaji Ali Raji fears local football will die without governmental support.

The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) are in turmoil following threat by Premier League clubs to boycott the Ghana Premier League due to their financial situation.

The sixteen clubs claim they lack the financial war chest to compete in the top-flight and hence want to boycott the remaining matches in the country’s top-tier.

The chief of the club’s umbrella body has admitted the lack of funds is having a serious toll on the clubs and fears it could lead to the collapse of local football in the West African country.

“Something drastic must be done because the clubs are suffering,” Alhaji Raji said

“There is no money and it’s seriously affecting the clubs. If care is not taken football will collapse in this country.

“I am calling on the government to step in and bail the clubs out. We all know there is no sponsorship for the League and so how do we expect the clubs to survive?

“We need governmental support and fast.”

The Ghana Premier League is without a headline sponsor for the season and clubs have only disbursed US$ 12,500 raked in from the SuperSport TV deal.

    Companies wont advertise if there is no possible consumers to advertise to. Possible consumers wont spend if they have no idea of you. in order for companies to invest in advertisement, the targeted consumers must know of them. And this can be done with more television/radio coverage of the sport, to draw viewers to the games and make people more aware of these products being advertised on the market. This will cause companies to make a worth-while investment on clubs in return for greater revenues by football enthusiast. or else both the GHALCA and companies in Ghana will face harder times getting by.
    Solution: Give people more chances and more options to WATCH the games.
