Winning bonus of the Ghana senior national football team the [Black Stars] according to reports we are picking from Gabon has been confirmed as $5000 per game by the new sports minister designate, Hon. Kwame Asiamah.
As it stands now each player will take $5000 for group stage match, $6000 for quarter finals stage,$7000 for semis & $7,500 for reaching grand finale stage of the competition.
The Black Stars players will take $15,000 as bonus for qualifying to the quarter-final stage even in they lose to Egypt on wednesday.
The Stars winning bonus have thus be slashed by 50%.
Asiamah met the Black Stars team on Monday morning at Port Gentil, Gabon and informed the playing body of their new incentive package.
The players will hence receive $5000 as a winning bonus but have been assured as part of the new incentive package will receive a jumbo price when they win the ultimate.
The minister we understand is expected to announce the new bonus policy to Ghanaians through the Ghanaian media in Gabon at a press conference scheduled for Monday evening after the team’s training at the Sogara Stadium in Port Gentil.
