Tough times as referees are yet to receive arrears from GFA 

Published on: 27 February 2020

Ghana referees have debunked claims by the GFA regarding clearing of arrears owed from matchday 1-4.

Some referees are peeved and have bitterly complained to some top officials over the payment of their allowances.

The FA over the week confirmed that the association has settled the outstanding debts from matchday 1 to 4.

In a statement released by the FA which indicates the first tranche has been paid to each referee’s bank account with the tax components and RAG percentages all deducted and paid.

A total amount of GH¢129,600 was paid to referees to officiate in the Ghana Premier League of which GH¢5760 was paid as tax, GH¢11,520 to Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) and GHc112,320 to the referees according to football governing body of the nation.

But the refrees are yet to receive money from the GFA and this makes the referees to be lobbied by club administrators to officiate in favour of certain teams thereby creating basis for bad officiating.
