Medeama SC President Moses Armah Parker says his club spent $300,000 before reaching the group phase of the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup.

The Ghanaian side defied all odds to eliminate South African side Mamelodi Sundowns by winning 2-0 on Wednesday at the Essipong Sports Stadium after losing the first leg 3-1.

Before that the 2015 FA Cup champions saw off Al Ahly Tipoli from Libya and Sudanese side Ahly Shendi.

And after the club’s historic win, the President of the Mauve and Yellows has revealed that they forked out $300,000 to qualify for the continent’s second-tier club competition.

“The three games that we played before we qualify for the group face, we spent $300,000,” Parker told Asempa FM.

“We paid for our own travelling tickets, we took care of our hotel bills so you should expect more money will be spent but the most important thing is we have qualified for the money zone,” he added.

Medeama will know their group opponents on May 24 when the draw is conducted at CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.
