The Ghana Football Association has agreed to share monies received as COVID-19 relief fund to clubs following a meeting on Tuesday, according to GHANASoccernet.com can.
The decision to split the monies among clubs was taken at a marathon Executive Council meeting of the GFA today, GHANASoccernet.com can confirm.
The monies will be shared among the Premier League clubs, Division One clubs, and the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA).
Premier League clubs will receive $15,000 with Division One clubs taking $10,000. GHALCA will receive $2,000.

Division One clubs will be given an amount of $5,000 from the first tranche, before later receiving $2000.
This will be seen as huge relief for the clubs following the unexpected financial difficulties faced due to the impact of COVID-19.
The 2019/20 season had to be ended following the increasing cases of coronavirus in the West African nation.
This has forced clubs to release players from camp with some teams owing salaries of players for more than two months.
The future of the Ghana Premier League is yet to be decided, with a date for congress to be decided for decision making.
