Legon Cities have become the first Ghana Premier League side to conduct a Covid-19 test for all of its players.
According to Club CEO, Fred Agbenyor all registered players together with technical staffs of the Club have undergone the tests with the result coming out negative.
Clubs have been reluctant on conducting the COVID-19 test on their players due to financial reasons.
However the Legon-based Club have set the pace by testing its players to stay on the safer side.
“Myself and Management team decided to take it upon ourselves to have our players and technical staffs take the COVID-19 test and all come out negative,” Club shareholder Fred Agbenyor disclosed to Atinka FM.
“Yes it was quite expensive because each person cost $80 and if you calculated that with the number of players we have together with the technical team then of course you will agree with me that it is expensive.
“My of the Clubs have been unable to conduct it for their players because it is expensive and it will be good if the government comes in and help these Clubs to also conduct the test.”
The resumption of the Ghana Premier League remains uncertain due to the growing records of cases in the country with Government already imposing a ban on contact sporting activities until further notice.
