Medeama SC’s Brands and Marketing Manager, Ebenezer Aidoo, has called on Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo, to honor his commitment to provide financial support to the club as they prepare for their CAF Champions League group phase matches.
Medeama had been promised GHS1 million by the president as a reward for being crowned champions of the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League and for presenting their trophy at the Jubilee House.
Despite their historic qualification for the CAF Champions League group stage, Medeama SC has not yet received the promised funds from President Akufo-Addo. With the group stage matches set to commence later this month, Aidoo is urging the president to fulfill his pledge to support the club’s preparations.
“We want to thank the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for their support during our African campaign because it has been good,” he expressed during an interview with Asempa FM.
“However, we also want to appeal to President Akufo Addo because he promised to offer us Ghc1m when we visited him, and we are pleading for him to fulfill his promise.
“We appeal to the Sports Ministry to ensure we receive the funds as we need it for our upcoming matches. Our expenses for travel and other preparations are substantial, and we need the funds to compete effectively in the CAF Champions League,” he added.
Medeama SC has been drawn into Group D alongside Al Ahly, Young Africans, and CR Belouizdad. Their campaign is scheduled to commence with a match against Al Ahly on November 25 in Cairo.
