The Ghana Football Association Normalisation Committee is set to pay US $25,000, which represents half of the US $50,000 prize money the Black Stars B team earned following their participation at the just ended West African Football Union Championship in Senegal where the team placed second.

According to the Normalisation Committee, the organisers are yet to pay the said amount to the Ghana Football Association. The committee however, according to reports, has decided to reward the team by paying out a $25,000 bonus package to all members.

“The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association has decided to immediately pay US $25,000, which is 50% of the US $50,000 prize money the Black Stars B earned for placing 2nd at the just-ended WAFU Championship in Senegal,” a statement by the Normalisation Committee read in parts.

Even though organisers of the tournament (WAFU) are yet to pay the money to the GFA, the NC has decided to reward the team by immediately advancing $25,000 to them for their gallant display during the tournament, and also to motivate them ahead of their crucial CHAN final qualifier with Burkina Faso tomorrow.

In a bid to further boost the morale of the team, the NC has also decided to immediately reward the Black Stars B with the remaining $25,000 of the WAFU prize money should they beat Burkina Faso to qualify for next year’s CHAN.”

The Black Stars ‘B’ will be in a battle with Burkina Faso in the last qualifier for the CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN).
