The Managing Director of Abu SamraTravel and Tours in Caira in Eyept, Abdul Aziz Elwan,will arrive in Ghana tomorrow to begin negotiations with African Origion Travel Consultacy to arrang for prospective soccer fans who want to go to Egyept to support the Black Stars during the CAN 2006 to go with ease.
The Managing Director of African OrigionTravel Consultancy,Mr.Sampson Deen in an exclusive interview with AUTHENTIC KAPITAL SPORTS on Kapital Radio in Kumasi today indicated that the two travel and tours agencies have come together to ensure that Ghanaian soccer fans travel to support the Stars in comfort whiles in Egyept.According to him it is amazing that Ghanaians are talking about the orld Cup now instead of the CAN 2006 which is closer. Mr. Deen said even though the qualification of the nation to the World Cup slated for Germany is very historic,the CAN 2006 is very crucial to how Ghana will perform at the Worl! d Cup.It is therfore important to give the CAN the needed importance since the performance of the team will surely reflect how we will fare in Germany.
He said it is in the light of this that he has put up a package with his Egyetian business partner to ensure that as many Ghanaian soccer fans as possible as will want to go and support the team in Egypt does that without sweat. Mr.Deen said already the two parties have secured over 250 match tickets,a five star hotel as well as comfortable means of transport in the Egytian Capital of Cairo for the Ghanaian fans.He said the fans will be based in Cairo because the Black Stars will not only be based in Port Said,but also in Ismailia for some games and it is therefore prudent to station the fans in the heart of Egypt from where a bus will transport them to all the venues to watch the games. Mr.Deen said he and his partner will meet with the Egyptian Counceller on Wednesday to fashion out modalities fo! r visas for the Ghanaian soccer fans,this is to make things easier for the them to secure visas for the tournament without problems.
He said they intend to charter a flight for the soccer fans who will want to go to Egypt at a very reduced fare.
Mr Deen said to better explain issues on the tripe the two parties are sheduled to hold a press conference at the HAYCON HOTEL in Kumasi on Friday to sensitise the media on the intended trip.
