GFA To Get $200,000 From CAF As Covid-19 Relief

Kurt E.S. Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA)

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has decided to immediately distribute a financial grant of $200,000 to each Member Association, including the Ghana Football Association, to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision was approved by the Emergency Committee of the continental football governing body at its meeting via video-conference on Thursday, May 28, 2020.

CAF said a total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 Member Associations on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times.

“Due to the fast-spread of COVID-19, African Member Associations have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders. CAF has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all MA’s can benefit during this difficult period,” stated President Ahmad Ahmad.

CAF is also assessing the opportunity of additional financial support to Member Associations for the resumption and organisation of their domestic competitions.
