Black Queens players pocketed over GHC12k each at AWCON 2018

The money is a sum up of their total per diem allowance as well as donations received from the Sports Ministry, Speaker of Parliament and Chief of Staff.


According to Starr Sports sources, per diems paid each player up till Saturday, November 24, totaled GH¢6,000.

Starrsports is also informed that the Sports Ministry moved to spur on the Queens prior to their must-win final group game against Cameroon with GH¢4,000 handed each player with a special package promised the team after advancing to the semifinal. The team, however, failed to beat the Indomitable Lionesses and hence exited the competition.

It will be recalled that just days before the 2018 Women’s Afcon kicked off, the Black Queens received a GH¢50,000 donation from the Speaker of Parliament. Each member of the squad of 21 pocketed GH¢1,500 from the sum.

The Black Queens also received a GH¢20,000 gift from the office of the Chief of Staff with each player receiving GH¢650 of the sum as their share.
