GFA Normilisation Committee

The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association has presented a budget of $7.2 million to the government for the Black Stars participation at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Should government rubber-stamp this budget, it will be the highest funds ever approved for the senior national team for any tournament.

The Normalisation Committee was set up by government and FIFA to oversee the running of the world game till a substantive FA is put in place.

In 2017, government approved US$3.37 million to participate in the finals held in Gabon.

According to the proposed budget, all 23 players will receive an increased appearance fee and their per diems which was US$ 100 during the 2017 competition will be increased to US$ 150.

The winning bonus will also shoot up from US$ 5,000 to US$10,00 during the tournament, while head coach Kwesi Appiah will take double that amount.

The Black Stars last lifted the title in 1982 when they defeated hosts Libya on penalties after sharing the spoils 1-1 in regulation time.

Ghana have booked a place in the 2019 AFCON but have a game to play in the qualifiers against the Harambee Stars of Kenya at home next month to decide who tops the Group.
