Hearts of Oak chief Frank Nelson laments on "peanut" Ghana Premier League prize money

Published on: 09 November 2017

Board Member of Hearts of Oak Frank Nwokolo Nelson believes more can be done to increase the Ghana Premier League prize money, claiming that the current amount is very scanty.

Aduana Stars bagged $30, 000 as winners of the Ghana Premier League, an amount that has received public criticism.

And Nelson, who doubles as an Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association, has claimed that the prize money is meagre.

“The GHC 30,000 prize money for the GPL winner is small, It is peanut. The amount is nothing, for instance if Hearts of Oak travel in and out to North the flight is GHC 24,000 so in case we win the league and we are given such amount is no money but that is what the GFA have.”

“Maybe in future something must be done so that the money is increased in order to help the league champions,”

Aduana Stars won the 2016/2017 Ghana Premier League with 57 points.
