Report: Black Queens’ Outstanding Bonuses Resolved

It is understood that bonuses owed to members of Ghana’s National Women’s Football Team, the Black Queens, have been disbursed.

The payment was facilitated this afternoon ahead of the Queens’ 2024 Olympic Games qualifier against Zambia at the Accra Sports Stadium, scheduled for 17:00 GMT.

Chairman of the Women’s Super Cup Committee, Ebenezer Allotey, confirmed in an interview with Citi Sports that all outstanding bonuses ($7,500 per player) owed to the team have been settled today.

The owed bonuses to the Queens stem from their participation in the 2024 Women’s AFCON and preliminary 2024 Olympics qualification games.

The Black Queens’ preparations for the crucial qualifier have faced challenges, with the team voicing concerns about neglect upon arrival at camp, lacking the presence of top officials from the GFA or Ministry of Youth and Sports.

However, GFA President Kurt Okraku, Minister of Youth and Sports Mustapha Ussif, and Chairperson of the Black Queens Management Committee, Dr. Gifty Oware-Mensah, visited the team on Wednesday, February 21, to address these concerns.

Zambia enters the tie as the favorites, having competed at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Despite securing a 3-1 victory over Costa Rica, the Barbara Banda-led team suffered defeats to World Cup quarterfinalist Japan and eventual winners Spain, resulting in their elimination in the first round.
