Inter Allies will NOT participate in next year’s CAF Confederation Cup due to lack of financial support.

The Tema-based side feel they don’t have the financial warchest to compete on the continent.

Allies are scheduled to represent the West African country after finishing as runners up in the MTN FA Cup.

But Chief Executive Delali Senaya says the economic downturn will make it difficult for them to participate in the elite competition.

“It is a difficult decision for Inter Allies to take, looking at the economic hardships currently in the country and therefore it is very difficult to play in Africa,” he told Joy FM

“Even though MTN have done very well to give us 50, 000 cedis as financial support but it is peanut when it’s been converted into Dollars due to the rise in the dollar rate.”

    even Kaizer chiefs PSL runners up are contemplating not partaking in the CAF Champions league.why travel to bumpy grounds in Congo armed rebels at the end of a 12 month competition a winning team only earns 12 million rands while the league pays 10 millions with 2 millions incentive a month for every PSL team,other than that Cup game pays huge money FA cup R6000 000, MTN cup R8000 000, Telkom Cup R6000 000. this means partaking in these Caf cups is running a business at a loss…and that’s not logical. and a $1500 fine is nothing to a team like Kaizer Chiefs with a R100 million budget every season.
    this not about money but the lack of professionalism in these Caf competitions
