Ghana’s President rewards WAFU Winning team $100k
Ghana’s President Akufo-Addo has rewarded the Black Stars ‘B’ with a cash prize of US$100,000 for winning the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations on Sunday.
The President announced the reward package after the team paid him a courtesy call at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Tuesday.
The sub-regional tournament had all 16-member countries in both WAFU Zone A&B participating.
The Black Stars ‘B’ thrashed rivals the Eagles of Nigeria 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium last Sunday to retain the title they won four years ago in Kumasi.
Organizers of the tournament gave Ghana a sum of $100,000 for winning the ultimate.
This means a total sum of $200,000 will be shared among 18 players, 10 back room staff and seven management members.
