Sunshine stars financial crisis worsens

Sunshine stars financial crisis worsens

State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has ordered the Ministry of Sports and Youths Development and the Ondo State Football Agency to seek ways outside the government to fund Premier League club Sunshine Stars.


The Akure outfit, who escaped relegation on the last  day of the  2016/17 Premier  League  season,    are facing a severe financial crisis.

Sunshine are reportedly owing their players salaries, forcing some of them to dump the side  for other clubs.

The Premier League kicks off on January 14  but  Sunshine, who  will travel to Owerri to take on Heartland, are allegedly unsure about honouring the encounter as the  team’s financial crisis worsens. 

It was learnt that the Ondo State Government, who owns the club, has not  given Sunshine  enough money for  preparations ahead of the upcoming season.
