The Communications Director for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has revealed that each domestic player in the league will receive at least GHC 1500 under their next government.

The NDC at the launch of their manifesto disclosed that they will establish a sports fund, which will support several sporting activities in the country.

However, Mr Gyamfi an interview with Kumasi FM insists the sports fund will also cater for wags of domestic league players.

"The NDC will establish the sports development fund. Government will furnish the account with enough money and also generate some from cooperate bodies," he said.

"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-clubs 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," he added.
