RE: SPORTS MINISTRY IS SENDING SUPPORTERS TO EGYPT FOR BLACK STARS – EGYPT MATCH

By
Updated: November 11, 2016

The Ministry’s attention has been drawn to speculations on various media networks that we are airlifting supporters to Alexandria, Egypt for the Black Stars’ match against Egypt on Sunday 13th November, 2016

The Ministry would want to clearly state that no such decision is being or has been taken by the Ministry.

This is in view of the fact that such decision would be in breach of the Government’s White Paper on the Report of the Dzamefe Commission.

The Ministry can only encourage private sponsorship for the various supporter groups, of which we appropriately backed the Ghana Supporters Union (GHANSU) to solicit funds from corporate organisations in their bid to galvanize support for the Black Stars in Egypt.
