AFCON 2019: Black Stars To Revert To Original Jersey For AFCON

According to reports, the Black Stars of Ghana will revert to the original jersey for the national team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Youth and Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, is reportedly already in talks with the Normalisation Committee to ensure that Ghana reverts to their previous white, yellow and red jersey colour.

The reports further indicate that Samuel Osei Kuffor, who is a member of the Normalisation Committee, has been tasked to ensure Puma gets Ghana a new design which bears the national colours.

This comes at a time when many Ghanaians are clamouring for the Black Stars to revert to the previous jersey which had the colours of Ghana’s national flag.

Ghana will be looking to win that elusive fifth continental trophy when the country takes on the rest of Africa in Egypt in June 2019.

Ahead of the tournament, reports in the local media suggest the team could be reverting to its old strips.

However, social media users have expressed their appreciation for the decision taken by the Sports Minister.

Ghana are in Group F with Cameroon, Guinea Bissau and Benin.

The 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will start from June 21 to July 19.
