Each Black Star Player To Receive Over 20k Dollars As Appearance Fee For AFCON 2021

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has disclosed that each player of the national team received $20,000 as appearance fee during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).⁠

This was confirmed by the Communications Director of the GFA, Henry Asante-Twum, in an interview with Accra-based Starr FM.⁠

The Black Stars endured a poor run in the tournament in Cameroon, culminating in a humiliating 3-2 defeat to Comoros. The result saw Ghana finish at the bottom of Group C after failing to win any of their three group matches.⁠

Also, this is the first time since 2006 that the Black Stars have been eliminated from the AFCON in the group stages.⁠

“The players were paid $20,000 as appearance fee, they didn’t earn any bonus because they did not win a single game,” Asante-Twum said.⁠

The FA’s Communications Director also denied reports that a decision has been made to appoint Chris Hughton as the next Ghana coach.
