The Black Queen’s, Ghana’s female national team, has reportedly boycotted training due to unpaid allowances.
This comes after head coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo invited 30 players to begin camping at the GFA Technical Center (GSCE) in Prampram.
The players were expected to converge at the center on Sunday, August 29, 2021, to prepare for the upcoming Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament.
However, according to a report by Ghana Sports Online, the players did not show up in protest of the FA’s failure to settle the allowances for their last assignment in July.
A source close to the team is quoted as saying: “The last time they reported camping, they had to pay for their T&T themselves.
“They were told they will be paid via MoMo, but nobody has received a penny from the GFA. They have also inquired about their allowances for this tournament in Nigeria, and we have been told there is no money. So they have resolved not to honor the invitation.”
Meanwhile, the Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament is scheduled for 13th – 21st September 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria.
