FA, L-Sporto On Collision Course
A protracted legal battle between the Ghana Football Association and American based sportswear manufacturer, L-Sporto is imminent. The Ghana Football Association is demanding $1million dollars from L-Sporto for failing to deliver on kits for all the national teams as agreed in a contract signed between the two bodies last year.
The amount when paid will mark the abrogation of the abortive contract.
The FA has accused the kit maker of neither delivering the kits nor paying any monies to the association nine months into the contract.
L-Sporto, however, contends that the FA has been most unprofessional in its dealings with it.
According to the sources close to the sportswear manufacturer, the FA received kit supplies from Jako, A German sportswear outfit, while the L-Sporto contract was still valid.
It is also believed that L-Sporto’s failure to honour its part of the deal is as a result of the dismal performance of most of the national teams in recent times.
The American-based company says it is prepared for legal showdown with the FA if it comes to that.
Under the said contract, L-Sporto was to provide kits for all the national teams, the Black Queens inclusive. It was also to provide cash for the development of the teams.
The FA last week abrogated its kits sponsorship deal with the United States manufacturing firm after months of undelivered equipments by the firm.
