U-20 WWCQ: Princesses to receive Algeria bonus this week – Sports Ministry

The Black Princesses are next to receive their bonuses as the Ministry of Sports moves to clear all outstanding moneys due the national teams, has been told.

The payments could come latest Friday.

The Ghana Under-20 girls are to receive the cedi equivalent of $2,000 as bonus for eliminating Algeria in the first round of the qualifiers to the World Cup, France 2018.

Coach Yusif Basigi’s side thrashed the North Africans 10-0 over two legs to reach the penultimate qualifying round where they have already secured a first leg advantage after beating Kenya 5-0 on Sunday.

After confirming payments made to the Ghana male U-17s following their participation at the just ended Fifa World Cup in India, the Public Relations Officer of the Sports Ministry, Elvis Adjei Baah told Monday that the Black “Princesses also have their bonus for the two legged hurdle against Algeria being processed.”

“Hopefully by the close of the week, they should be receiving their cash.

“Yes, it is $1,000 per win so for advancing to the next stage, they get double for the two-legged tie.

“However, it must be noted that payments would be made in the cedi equivalent. That is a policy of the Ministry of Sports that any athlete will be paid in our denomination.

“For the Princesses, we need to send a confirmation to the Bank of Ghana and their bank accounts provided by the GFA will be credited,” he elaborated.

The Ghana U-20 women’s team are chasing a sixth straight outing at the Fifa World Cup.
