The Ghana Supporters Union has dismissed claims that they were offered $400 each to avoid boycotting their support for the Black Stars during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Speaking at a press conference in Abidjan, Abraham Nkansah, a representative of the union, denied media reports suggesting that the money was given to them to prevent a potential boycott.

He explained that the funds were actually a standard allocation provided by the ministry to take care of the supporters.

According to Nkansah, the rumors of a boycott may have stemmed from misinformation spread by a particular media outlet.

He clarified that the supporters had been well taken care of by the ministry since their arrival, including being provided with food and accommodation. Additionally, each supporter received $400, which was not intended to dissuade them from supporting the team.

Nkansah reiterated the supporters’ commitment to cheering on the Black Stars in their upcoming match against Egypt, stating that they are “okay” and ready to support the team.

The match is scheduled to take place on Thursday at the Stade Félix Houphouët Boigny, with both teams seeking their first victory in the tournament.
