Ghana's No. 1
Ghanaian clubs to spend minimum $3,000 each per week for Covid-19 test
Medeama must spend at least $3,000 to test for coronavirus per week

Ghanaian clubs will have to cough a minimum of $3,000 each a week to test for coronavirus before every league match, GHANAsoccernet.com can report. 

It will cost each player at least $100 per test as the future of the current Ghana football seasons continues to dominate inches in the local media.

Ghanaian football players, coaches and other supporting staff will be required to take a test for COVID-19 before training sessions or matches if the Ghana FA is given a seal of approval to re-start football.

The team's medical team will then assess whether players and coaches are healthy enough to take part.

That clearly will put a further financial strain on local clubs who are already grappling with massive cost due to the suspension of football due to the coronavirus.

Testing of players and coaches will be a requisite tool before football can restart in the West African nation, GHANAsoccernet.com understands.

Already, the Ghana Football Association has warned clubs against training following the lifting of the lockdown by the country's President Nana Akufo Addo while the league remained suspended. 

Ghana football has been suspended since March because of the global pandemic.

There is no set date for when the campaign can resume in Ghana, with several outstanding fixtures still to play.

The Ghana FA has says it will communicate a final decision on the 2019/2020 football season on June 30. 

While there have been no reported case of a footballer contracting the novel virus, the heath authorities are determined to adhere to the strict protocols to prevent a further outbreak.
