Medeama board chairman laments Ghana Premier League prize money

Medeama Sporting Club board member, Dr. Tony Aubynn, has expressed worry over receiving GHC300,000 as prize money for winning the Ghana Premier League.

Having won the league for the first time, the Tarkwa-based side will receive the amount as a reward as the club embark on preparations for the season ahead.

Due to their status as champions, the club will now have to plan for three separate competitions with the CAF Champions League becoming part of their challenges in addition to the Ghana Premier League and the FA Cup.

Despite his disappointment with the amount, Dr Aubynn, who also serves on the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Executive Council, praised the GFA for assisting clubs in other ways while noting the association’s limits in offering more substantial financial rewards.

“I quite agree that after the test of going through the league, if your reward is three hundred thousand (300,000) Ghana Cedis, it becomes very worrying,” he told Joy News.

“But you are right. You can not give what you do not have. The Ghana Football Association is running many other activities. It is providing other support.

“In those days when smaller teams have to get boots, footballs and all those things. These days, the FA tries to provide some of these things.”
