The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced changes in the schedule of the Black Stars with regard to their trip to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The team was initially scheduled to travel to Kumasi on Wednesday, November 13 ahead of their first World Cup qualifier against Madagascar.
However, the FA in a statement said they would travel to Kumasi on Tuesday morning.
“The Black Stars Technical team has made a change to the team’s schedule for the doubleheader against Madagascar and Comoros. The team will now fly to Kumasi on Tuesday morning instead of Wednesday.”
Pictures posted by the FA on Facebook showed the players boarding a plane for their trip. They are expected to hold their first training this afternoon behind closed doors in Kumasi.
The communication by the FA noted, “Tuesday and Wednesday’s training sessions will be behind closed doors.”
Ghana will take on Madagascar at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Friday, November 17, 2023, before their second qualifier against Comoros at the Moroni Stadium on November 21.
The next FIFA Men’s World Cup will take place in 2026 in Canada, the USA and Mexico between June and July 2026.
Ghana will be seeking to make their fifth World Cup appearance with the qualifiers after qualifying for the tournament in 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2022.
