:twisted: Where is Nigeria Breakdown?Mr. Picnick :lol:

Quote:
The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah, has revealed that the country budgeted Six Million, Three Hundred and Sixty-Five Thousand, Thirty-Three Dollars and Eighty-Four Cents (US$6,365,033.84) for Ghana’s participation at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Out of this amount, Four Million, Five Hundred and Sixty-Four Thousand, Three Hundred and Fifty-Two Dollars (US$4, 564, 352.00) was expended from the training tour up until the team exited the AFCON at the round of 16 stage.

The figures were revealed when the Minister met Parliament on Wednesday to discuss Ghana’s participation at the 24-team tournament in Egypt.

The expenditure covered the following:

The playing body

Technical team

Members of Parliament’s Select Committee on Youth and Sports

Representatives of GHALCA

Representatives of Old Footballers

Some staff of the GFA

Some staff of the Ministry of Youth and Sports

Some members of the Ghana Supporters Union

Journalists

A further breakdown of the expenditure is provided as follows:

Airfare – $924,168

Per diem, players – $187,050

Per diem, technical staff – $129, 600

Per diem, additional technical staff – $90,750

Winning bonus, players – $965, 405

Winning bonus, technical – $347,027

Winning bonus, additional technical staff – $177,000

Accommodation – $1,143,519

Feeding – $*****,300

Match Tickets 0 $41,750

Medicals – $44,574

Visa Fees – $8,541

Internal Transportation -$43,092

Incidentals – $42,576

Total; $4,564,352

Analysis

Details of the budget for every AFCON has always been controversial and this is no different.

The most noticeable issue with this budget is the $965, 405 paid to the Black Stars players as winning bonuses.

Considering Ghana only won one out of their 4 matches, simple division of that figure by the 23 players would mean that each player was paid nearly $42,000 each. For the one game won?

Even if the players were paid a qualification bonus from the group stages, at $10,000 per match, that would amount to $30,000 which still leaves some almost $12,000 unaccounted for.

...sub Sahara African countries, especially Nigeria do not embark on advertisement, commercials to fund the national team. Only government freebies. Money that can never repaid, or recouped to fund future projects.

We are a footballing small time team I know before anyone reminds me :taunt: :taunt: but The Warriors are funded by sponsors, well wishers and fund raising organised by the SRC (Sports and Recreation Council). Government doesn't put money in national teams. I think the final fundraising event before raised 0.5 million USD

SPORTSWarriors Fundraising Set To Surpass Targets

The target of US$500 000 set by the fundraising dinner committee is set to be surpassed as government, corporates and individuals have taken the task as a national cause.

The warriors are already in Egypt for their fourth participation at Africa’s biggest football showcase, AFCON, and the fundraising is set to cushion the football team’s allowances and related expenses.



The fundraising has been set as a national priority with the President having set the fundraising committee which has since organised the fundraising dinner among other fundraising initiatives.

“As Warriors venture into the deserts of Egypt and represent our country before the eyes of the world and our people in the diaspora, I exhort the nation at large to rally behind them by generously donating to their welfare,” Guest of Honour at a Fundraising Dinner for the Warriors, President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa said at the event.

You pay for what you get. Unfortunately for Ghana it does not apply to AFCON.

...good for y'all. In Nigeria it is government freebie here and there. Ministry of sports, or whatever they call them now, is crawling with jobless former players, hangers-on, and what have you.

There are still Ghanaian supporters in Egypt – Sports Ministry PRO
Quote:
here are still some Ghanaian supporters in Egypt, 3 weeks after the Black Stars of Ghana exited the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, according to the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Elvis Adjei-Baah.

The Ministry has come under heavy criticism from Ghana’s for blowing cash on hundreds of supporters in Egypt, all though the Djamefe Commission advised government against flying football fans to competitions.

Sector Minister, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, revealed last week that the country spent $4.5 million on its failed AFCON campaign.

Ghanaian fans and journalists stayed back weeks after Ghana exited the competition, being accommodated and fed at the expense of the tax payer.

“I can’t tell you the exact number of supporters we took to Egypt for now,” Adjei-Baah told Joy FM when asked about the number of fans taken the ministry took to Egypt.

“There are still some supporters in Egypt and we can only tell you when everyone returns,” Adjei-Baah said.


Ghana flew pastors and mallams to Egypt in awful 2019 AFCON campaign

Quote:
Ghana's sports ministry flew pastors and mallams to Egypt for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in a highly-spiritual campaign which fell flat, GHANAsoccernet.com has been told.

The country spent huge sums of money on a spiritual expedition in the calamitous campaign in the North African nation.

Sports minister Isaac Asiamah is under mounting pressure after he claimed the country spent $4.5 million on the team's disastrous AFCON campaign.

While the expenditure has become a subject of intense controversy, fresh reports have revealed the country invested in pastors and mallams to aid the country's 37-year wait for an African crown.

However, the presence of a combined five pastors and mallams could not do the trick as the four-time African champions crashed out of the tournament at the Round of 16 stage, losing on penalties to Tunisia.

While other nations focused on the scientific approach to the game, Ghana, which is described as the nation with highest percentages of self-described religious persons, spent hard earned cash on spirituality.

The diagnosis of the country's expenditure for the failed Africa Cup of Nations campaign has been on the front-burner in the local media.

While attempts have been made to justify what has largely been labeled as an outrageous expenditure, pressure has been intensified for a tight scrutiny of the $4.5 million cash.

Apart from the principal actors- players and the technical team, the sports ministry splashed cash on 'media friends', officials and party apparatchiks.
