Ghana U20 ladies in AAG bonus row

Posted On Friday, 16th September 2011

Black Princesses have threatened to boycott All Africa Games final over bonuses

By Patrick Akoto

Ghana’s Under-20 ladies are threatening to boycott Saturday’s All Africa Games final over ‘discrimination’ in the disbursement of winning bonuses, according to reports in the local media.

The Black Princesses were paid US$ 20,000 for securing a final berth while the Under-23 team pocketed US$ 40,000 for achieving the same feat.

The Sports Ministry claims they will play the difference of US$ 20,000 after the multi-sports event.

Minister Clement Kofi Humado was believed to have held a marathon meeting with the players to douse their anger ahead of the final cliff hanger against Cameroon.

The Black Princess are unbeaten in the tournament were clinical in dispatching Algeria 3-0 in the semi-final.

The Black Meteors will also play South Africa in the final on Saturday after a 1-0 win over Cameroon.

    • Final Whistle says:

      This is not descrimination! All over the world, male players earn more than female players! Even the prize money paid by the organizers of the tournament for annexing the trophy will not be the same. How many of the female players will be signed by foreign based teams with an amount bigger than $10 000 000 as compared to the boys? meaning the FA stand the chance of gaining back what they spend on the boys. This whole thing is business oriented and it is run by demand! The higher your demand the higher your price!Girls you deserve something for the good work done but your comparison with the Meteors is far fetched. We are behind you but learn to take what is due you!
