Supporters group MISUGHA ready to partially finance World Cup trip to Brazil

The Millennium Supporters Union of Ghana (MISUGHA) say they are prepared to meet government halfway over the cost involved in going to Brazil to support the Black Stars at the 2014 World Cup.

The supporters group in their meeting on Thursday; have resolved to finance their feeding and internal transportation while in Brazil and will only need financial assistance in securing accommodation, flight and match tickets for the World Cup.

“Due to challenges in the economy, we are seeking the intervention of Government to only provide us with air tickets to Brazil and accommodation,” MISUGHA General Secretary Ahmed Suallah said at the meeting.

“We need no feeding neither do we need any internal transportation as our members have started preparing towards their feeding and other miscellaneous [expenditure].”

The move by the supporters group forms part of their contributions towards ensuring government’s plans of taking ‘a few’ supporters to Brazil for the World Cup comes at minimum cost to the state.

There is a raging debate as to whether it is prudent for the government to use the national purse to take fans to Brazil.

The supporters however says it should be deemed as punished to the Black Stars if the state fails to take supporters to the World Cup.

“A means of punishment for a team is that they play behind closed doors without supporters,” Suallah added.

Therefore if the Black Stars travel to Brazil alone without supporters, then it means they are being punished.”

The supporters group unveiled African Origin Travel and Sports Tourism as their official travel agency for the 2014 World Cup.

Ghana is making its third successive appearance at the World Cup in this year’s edition.

Government has financed supporters to previous editions to offer morale to the Black Stars and intend to do same for this year’s tournament being hosted by Brazil.
