Each of the 27 players of the National Under-20 Team, the Black Satellites will receive $10, 000 from the government for winning the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Under-20 Championship in Mauritania recently.

In addition, each of the nine members of the Technical Team would also receive $10,000 for their contribution to the success of the team, making it a total of $330,000 on the entire team.

This was announced by President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, at the Jubilee House in Accra.

According to the President, each playing member was entitled to $5,000 in cash and an investment facility in the form of a bond worth $5,000 which would mature in 10 years.

He said the investment was necessary due to the short life span of the playing career of sportsmen and women.

President Akufo Addo also made a personal pledge of $5,000 each to goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim, Captain Afriyie Barnieh, Overall Best Player Fatawu Issahaku and Head Coach Karim Zito.

Ghana beat Uganda 2-0 in the final to win a record fourth African title on Saturday, March 6, 2021, at the Olympics Stadium in Nouakchott, Mauritania.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
