All clubs for the 2014 GHALCA Top 4 tournament will be paid a participation fee of GH¢15,000, the organizers have confirmed.
The Ghana League Clubs Association failed to secure a headline sponsor for the pre-season tournament but have decided to make some financial commitments to the clubs.
“We have had difficulties with tying down a headline sponsor but GHALCA has resolved to give the clubs GH¢15,000 as participation fee,” GHALCA chairman Alhaji Ali Raji told Graphic Sports.
“GHALCA is also looking at allowing the clubs to make four substitutions during the games. This will afford the clubs maximum opportunities to test their new signings.”
This year’s tournament will be competed by league champions Asante Kotoko, Heart of Lions, Hearts of Oak and AshantiGold.
Hearts of Oak play Heart of Lions in Accra on Saturday and Kotoko travel to AshantiGold on Sunday for the first leg matches.
