Government of Ghana has agreed to engage football players in the Ghana Women’s premier league on the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
This is part of initiatives by the Government and Ghana Football Association(GFA) to lessen the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the female players following the suspension of football activities in Ghana.
Per the agreement, the YEA will spend a total of $288,000 covering a period of 6 months where players are entitled to ghc500 monthly allowances.
That means beginning from July 2020 a total of ghc240,000 will be spent monthly on players to ease the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their lives.
The Ghana Women’s premier league season has been suspended since March after government’s ban on social gatherings.
The Youth Employment Agency (YEA) was established to empower young people to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the nation.
