Ghana Premier League Champions Medeama SC have been given just $26.6k whiles Ghana’s Black Stars management committee members received $100K dollars as appearance fee.
The Ghana Football Association paid the management committee members of the Black Stars team as appearance fees at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar later last year.
Meanwhile, the winners of the Ghana Premier League competition would have to at least win four titles to be able to make same amount of money as made by the Stars management committee members at the World Cup tournament only.
Medeama will represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League prelims in the upcoming 2023-24 season which means the club would need more money to make impact at the competition to at least get to the money zone of the competition.
With traveling across Africa a difficult thing to do, the prize money of the GPL may not be enough to cater for the club’s one trip depending on the location of the team the draw in the preliminary round.
