The Ministry of Youth and Sports has announced $5000 winning bonus for the senior national team the Black Stars.
This bonus structure will cater for both the Stars’ World Cup Qualifier and 2019 Cameroun AFCON qualifiers and tournament matches.
This was disclosed in a press conference in Kumasi by the deputy Minister of Youth and Sports Enam Pius Enam Hadzide.
The deputy Sports Minister during a press briefing on Monday at the Babayara Sports Stadium confirmed players will receive $5,000 each as winning bonuses.
The team’s bonuses was slashed by 50% prior to their participation at the Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon early this year.
Reports indicate the Ministry will maintain the bonuses of the Black Stars team at $5,000 in subsequent matches until further notice.
The Black Stars began their AFCON 2019 qualifiers on a promising note after dismantling Ethiopia 5-0 at the Babayara Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Captain Asamoah Gyan, John Boye, Ebenezer Ofori and Raphael Dwamena were on target for the team.
Kwesi Appiah hopes to qualify the team to the Cup of Nations having guided them to the semi-finals at the 2013 edition in South Africa.
