Published on: 28 May 2020

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to benefit a sum of US$200,000 from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) as part of the stimulus package they are sharing to members associations in the midst of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

The African continent has been faced with the Covid-19 disease for the past few months just like the other continents of the world.

The situation has led to the suspension of football seasons in all countries of Africa with some making arrangements to resume shortly.

In the wake of the challenges presented by the Covid-19 crisis, CAF has decided to distribute a stimulus package to mitigate the financial burden of all of its member associations.

A whopping cash amount of US$10.8million is to be shared amongst the associations as Coronavirus pandemic support fund.

"A total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 MA’s on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times", a CAF statement has said.

Out of that amount, the Ghana FA and all the other football governing bodies in the other countries will receive US$200,000 each.
