Wilson Arthur who doubles as the chairman of the MTN FA Cup and also the President of Skyy FC has urged clubs to consider in the era of Covid-19.
All GFA organised competitions have been cancelled by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association following the widespread of Coronavirus in the country.
Wilson Arthur has advised Football Clubs to be innovative in breaking down the cost of running their teams.
“By way of funding and financial preparation Skyy FC would consider starting SKYY FARMS”
“A lot of the vegetables takes few months to harvest, so if I got the resources, I wouldn’t mind cultivating a rice farm making sure I have enough of rice to cater for my team for the entire season”
“We have to be innovative, by breaking down the cost of running teams into parts”
“For example if you have a team bus,you can work on fuel sponsorship, you can even do food and beverage sponsorship, water sponsorship, so you can part your expenditure into parts and get bits of sponsors for all, to ease the burden of club financing”
“This is very important because they way and manner business is moving in this COVID 19 situation it would be difficult to get one big sponsor to absorb all your cost, so this is the time to be very innovative” Wilson Arthur said in an interview with Skyy Power FM.
