Prez Akufo Addo sets up committee to raise $25 million for Black Stars

The Government of Ghana has set up a 5-member committee to raise an amount of $15 million to support the Black Stars participation at AFCON 2022 as well as the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The government has already committed $10 million out of the $25 million that the team will need for both competitions and the committee is tasked with raising the remaining $15 million from corporate Ghana.

The committee is headed by the Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, with his Deputy Evans Bobie Opoku, who has yet to go through vetting, as a member.

Other members include the Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku, Black Stars head coach CK Akonnor and former Ghana international Sammy Kuffour.

In a Breakfast meeting with Chief Executive Officers from corporate Ghana at the Jubilee House on Monday morning, the Sports Minister revealed the Black Stars would need $25 million dollars to successfully execute the AFCON 2022 tournament to be held in Cameroun and the Qatar 2022 World cup qualifiers, with Ghana already booking their spot at the former.

President Akufo-Addo urged corporate Ghana to support the team and tasked the Black Stars to end the country’s 40-year wait for an AFCON title and also reach the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
