We can’t sit for Hearts, Kotoko to receive bigger share of betPawa money – Alhaji Grusah fumes

Published on: 03 August 2022

Owner of King Faisal Football Club, Alhaji Karim Grusah has kicked against any move that will see Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko receive the bigger share of sponsorship money from betPawa.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, unveiled the betting company as the official headline sponsor of the Ghanaian top-flight league campaign.

The company is set to pump $6 million into the Ghana Premier League, 2 million dollars for every season for the next three years.

Reacting to speculations that there are plans by the GFA to give Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko more money than the other clubs, Alhaji Grusah says they should not try.

According to him, clubs must boycott the league if indeed that is the plan of the GFA.

“They can’t tell us that nonsense. If they are big clubs they are big clubs in their home. I’m going to find out from the FA and if this is true they will see something. I’m calling on the clubs, let’s all not sit and entertain this. If they are big clubs then we will all boycott the league for them to play the league alone,” Alhaji Grusah told Accra-based Angel FM in an interview.
