Ghana’s Black Queens have finally received their outstanding bonuses from the Ministry of Youth and Sports ahead of their crucial 2024 Olympic Games qualifier against Zambia today.

The players, who had previously threatened to boycott the match, were reportedly owed $7,500 each, amounting to about 92,812 cedis per player, over their last three qualifiers.

GFA President Kurt Okraku, Minister of Youth and Sports Mustapha Ussif, and Chairperson of the Black Queens Management Committee, Dr. Gifty Oware-Mensah visited the team on Wednesday, promising huge support and guaranteeing the payment of their bonuses.

In line with that promise, it can be confirmed that members of Ghana’s National Women’s Football Team have now been paid the bonuses owed to them and are poised to take on Zambia in the first leg of the qualifier on Friday.

The Black Queens enter the game in impressive form, having suffered only one defeat in their last 11 matches, with an impressive tally of 10 victories. However, they face a formidable Zambian side that cannot be underrated, having featured in the last World Cup. Zambia also boasts the world’s most expensive player, Rachel Kundananji, following a $787,800 transfer from Madrid CFF of Spain to Bay FC of the United States.

The first leg of the qualifier will take place at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday. Excitingly, it will be a free gate for all spectators. The second leg is scheduled in Lusaka five days later, adding to the anticipation surrounding the tie.

The winner of this contest will advance to the final qualifying round, where they will face either Morocco or Tunisia in their bid to secure a coveted spot at the Paris Olympic Games.
