The National Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has revealed that his party will pay every premier league player an average of GHC1,500 every month when it wins power come December.
He said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will set up a sports development fund that will be used to support the players.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi FM monitored by My News Ghana, he said, “The NDC will establish a sports development fund. The government will furnish the account with enough money and also generate some from cooperate bodies”.
“Every club that plays in the premier league will be supported with funds to settle player salaries, an average money of GHC 1,500 will be paid to each player.
“Every club that qualifies to play in the CAF Inter-club competition will also be supported. The inter-colleges games will also be supported financially with this fund.
“However, clubs that transfer players abroad will give a percentage of the money they earn into the sports fund.”
