The decision was reached following a directive by the coach Milovan Rajevac to have a serene camping atmosphere devoid of distraction during the team’s preparation for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The statement from the GFA, however, noted that the media will be granted access to the players and the head coach on January 6, 2022, before the team departs for Cameroon on January 7.

The Black Stars will camp in Doha for a period of 17 days to prepare for the tournament, which kicks off on Sunday, January 9, 2021.

Ghana are expected to play three friendly matches in Qatar before they emplane to Cameroon for the tournament.
