Akufo-Addo Gives Black Stars ‘B’ Extra $100k

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has rewarded the Black Stars ‘B’ with a cash prize of US$100,000 for winning the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations on Sunday.

The President announced the reward package after the team paid him a courtesy call at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Tuesday.

The Black Stars ‘B’ thrashed rivals the Eagles of Nigeria 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium last Sunday to retain the title they won four years ago in Kumasi.

The sub-regional tournament had all 16-member countries in both WAFU Zone A&B participating.

Organizers of the tournament also gave Ghana a sum of $100,000 for winning the ultimate.

This means a total sum of $200,000 will be shared among 18 players, 10 back room staff and seven management members.
