STATEMENT ON THE BLACK STARS WORLD CUP APPEARANCE FEES
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is happy to announce that His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama has personally intervened to have the Black Stars World Cup appearance fees paid by Wednesday afternoon.
President Mahama waded into the matter after agitation from the Black Stars players over their appearance fees for the World Cup which has not been paid since the start of the competition.
President Mahama personally spoke to the players to assure them that the money will be paid by Wednesday afternoon which has brought some assurance to the Black Stars.
Government is pre-financing the payment of the Black Stars appearance fees which will be reimbursed when FIFA's prize-money for Ghana's participation in the World Cup is paid after the tournament in Brazil.
We wish to assure the general public following President Mahama's intervention the Black Stars are in high spirits ahead of Thursday's match last Group G match against Portugal.
