Covid-19: Support From Corporate Partners Have Stopped Coming – George Amoako Laments
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has shared that monthly support from the club’s corporate partners has stopped due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.
The Covid-19 presence in the country has forced the suspension of the 2019/2020 football season. As a result, clubs have been inactive for the last 2 months as they continue to wait for the campaign to resume.
In the midst of the increasing number of Coronavirus cases, George Amoako has disclosed that it is having a financial toll on Asante Kotoko. According to him, corporate partners have stopped giving the club monthly support because they have no way of repaying by giving them mileage.
“As a result of this Covid-19, corporate bodies who are supporting us monthly have stopped paying the monies because they are not getting the mileage they are expecting when the football season is on.
“Because we are not playing football, they are not paying the monies”, the CEO for the Porcupine Warriors said in an interaction on Happy FM today on the theme: ‘Effects of COVID-19 on Football Clubs in Ghana’.
Clubs admits to the financial problems presented as a result of the Coronavirus crisis and are calling on the Ghana FA, the corporate bodies, as we as the government for support.
