Sports Ministry settle Black Queens’ outstanding bonuses ahead of Olympic qualifier against Zambia

The Ministry of Youth and Sports has settled the outstanding bonuses owed to the Black Queens just in time for their Olympic Games qualifier against Zambia in 2024.

The women’s senior national team has been at the center of attention as a result of unpaid bonuses from their previous three qualifiers.

Reports were indicating that the players were considering boycotting the third round of the Olympic qualifier against Zambia due to the unresolved bonuses and per diems.

This public outcry prompted quick action from the Sports Ministry, led by Mustapha Ussif, the Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku, and the Chairperson of the Black Queens Management Committee, Gifty Oware-Mensah.

After a visit from these officials, the players were given assurance that their outstanding bonuses would be paid.

Additionally, all per diems, including the owed ones, have now been settled, with the outstanding bonuses expected to be paid soon.

The first leg of the game is scheduled for Friday, February 23 at the Accra Sports Stadium, with the return fixture taking place five days later.
