Ghana reverses decision to exclude football from 2019 African Games

The Ghana U-20 football team will take part in the 2019 African Games in Morocco after the sports ministry backtracked on a decision to exclude the discipline due to financial constraints.

The ministry had claimed Ghana was not guaranteed a medal in the football competition and, together with nine other low priority sport disciplines, announced they would be dropped from the team sent to the games.

However, Africa’s football governing body Caf then threatened to impose a ban and a fine if Ghana maintained its decision to pull out of the 2019 African Games men’s football tournament.

The Black Satellites have been pitted against Mali, Senegal and Burundi in Group B of the football tournament taking place between August 16-30 in Rabat and Kenitra in Morocco.

Senegal won the 2015 edition held in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo.
