Premier League: Clubs Must Give Government A Break

Are clubs threatening to boycott the second round of the 2013|2014 Ghana Premier League as it returns in February?

To some it is horrifying for teams especially in the top flight playing the league without any sole sponsorship and they are have to express their displeasure about the efforts of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Even till date could one imagine the clubs have not received the balances of last season premier league sponsored by Glo. It appears more attention is being to the Black Stars with our local league deteriorating.

No wonder the clubs will continue to suffer because of the financial debt that keeps piling up every now and then due to the unavailability of sponsors for the local league. Due to frustration and oppression they have no option than to channel the grievances to the government. But such an attempt is am improper of communication knowing id the duty of GFA to secure a sponsor for the league not government to invest in.

It surprise me to hear some club owners pleading to government to support them financially whiles in any they teams have not made efforts to get a major sponsor for the season and beyond.

This suggestion from some owners of the clubs goes to the buttress how inefficient and market ably disoriented they are.

Since the GFA is yet to get a major sponsor for the league, the clubs should focus on how best they could get for themselves sponsors to the run their clubs than disturbing government whose are compounding every seconds in the country.

The club owners should give government a break.
