Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah, has disclosed that his outfit has not budgeted any winning bonuses for the Black Stars B in the ongoing WAFU Cup of Nations.

Broadcast giant, Fox Sports, have invested $2 million for the organisation of the tournament.

The winners of the tournament will take home $100,000; second place will receive $50,000 and $25,000 for the team that will place third.

The Black Stars B saw off the Scorpions of The Gambia 1-0 in their first game of the competition via a controversial penalty call by Burkinabe referee, Ouedraogo Boukari.

According to Asiamah, government is not committed to paying winning bonus to the team unless they lift the cup.

“For this tournament, the government has not committed any winning bonus. What has been agreed with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwasi Nyantakyi, is that Fox Sports, as organisers of the tournament, have a package for the winners and participants of this competition.”

“If the Black Stars B should win this tournament, which has prize money of $100,000, then part of that money will be shared by the players as their winning bonus.”

“Nothing will be coming from the government coffers. Everything is being sponsored by Fox Sports, including pitch maintenance and many other things.”

Ghana yesterday played against Guinea in the second game of the competition at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The competition, which kicked-off on Saturday, September 9, 2017, will end on September 24, 2017.
