It Takes About GHC 10000 To Make The Stadium Ready For A Match – NSA
According to the National Sports Authority’s Public Relations Officer, it takes them almost GHC 10,000 to make the stadium ready for just a game.
Sometimes we make around GHC 102 after a game. In the press statement, they said they don’t rent the stadium to any premier league team in the country.
“Kotoko doesn’t rent Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Accra Hearts of Oak doesn’t rent Accra Sports Stadium, etc; and if they were, pitch preparation and cleaning of seats ahead of games would have been their responsibility but the NSA plays this role to support the clubs”, they said.
Remember, it takes almost GHS 10,000 to ready the facility for a match including the cost of pitch preparation, sanitation, electricity, water, and personnel.
When you look at the contract NSA signed with the Premier clubs, none of them chose the renting option. Fact!! All the clubs chose the second option of organising matches together to share the proceeds from the match. Fact!! If you pay attention to the function statement of games at Baba Yara, or Accra Sports stadium, the NSA with its 15% doesn’t meet the cost of stadium preparation, and equally the clubs don’t really benefit either, in my opinion.
They said, “For example, the NSA made just GHS 102 when King Faisal played RTU at the Baba Yara on February 05, 2022”.
The authority got just GHS 4,333 from gross proceeds of GHS 69, 690 when Kotoko played Olympics at Baba Yara on January 28, 2022.
