According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Sports Authority (NSA), no premier league club in the country can afford to rent the stadium at the cost of GHC 100,000 per day.
“However, no club in Ghana’s premier league can afford to rent at this price, thus the NSA has resorted to working with clubs to organise games and share match earnings according to a formula established by the Finance Ministry,” said PRO of NSA.
This is a captured Fees and Charges of the Finance Ministry and approved by the Parliament of Ghana.
“They disclosed it after a closed meeting with the stakeholders of the various clubs in the country on the topic “EDUCATION ON OPERATIONS OF NSA: STADIUM USE BY PREMIER CLUBS”
The National Sports Authority (NSA) apart from its mandate to develop sports, promote sporting competitions in and outside Ghana, registering and licensing sports associations and federations (47 in number now), as enshrined in Sports Act, 2016 (Act 934) and Legislative Instrument (Regulation) L.I. 1988, also manages and maintains all state-owned sporting facilities across the country including Accra Sports Stadium, Cape Coast Sports Stadium, Kumasi Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Sekondi-Takoradi Essipong Stadium, Tamale Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium and Sunyani Coronation Sports Stadium. There are also many satellite stadia, scores of Astroturf playing fields, and hockey stadia. These are made available to clubs, federations, and individuals for sports and non-sports activities with specified conditions.
The cost of renting a major stadium with seating capacity above twenty thousand per day is GHS 100,000 as captured in Fees and Charges of Finance Ministry and approved by Parliament.
However, no club in the premier league in Ghana is able to rent at this fee and therefore, the NSA has resorted to collaborating with the clubs to organize games and share match proceeds based on sharing formula (Function Statement) approved by Finance Ministry. This is captured in contracts signed between NSA and clubs using these stadia as their home.
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.”
