President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku has reacted to the ‘exorbitant’ charges from the National Sports Authority (NSA) for the usage of Accra Sports stadium for the 2020/21 football season.

In a press statement released earlier today by the NSA, the institution indicated that any club who wants to use the Accra Sports Stadium as their home venue for the 2020/21 football season will have to pay GHC 20,000 in order to use the facility for each game.

Reacting to the statement, Kurt Okraku has taken to Twitter to express his disappointment over the charges and has vowed to engage with NSA.

“I have read in the public space a statement from the NSA on new stadia user facility charges.

“I will say this is unfortunate and our GFA will engage the NSA on this exorbitant and unacceptable fees,” Kurt Okraku wrote on Twitter.

The Accra Sports Stadium will host games in both the Premier League and Division One as six teams have confirmed to use the venue.

The venue will serve as home ground to Hearts of Oak, Legon Cities, Asante Kotoko, Inter Allies, Great Olympics and Division One side Accra Lions for the 2020/21 football season.
