Minister of Youth and Sports Mustapha Ussif has given assurances that the state will not commit its resources to convey supporters to the World Cup in Qatar.
The issue of funding fans to tournaments has come under scrutiny in recent times with the last most contentious one being the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
With the nation reeling under current economic hardships, the Minister on Citi Fm’s Eye Witness News stated that work is being done to secure private sponsorship to cater for the situation.
“Government is trying to raise funds through Corporate Ghana to help us to take fans to support our Black Stars.
“We will not use State funds for this and that is why we are appealing to corporate Ghana to come to our aid.” he stated.
Ghana will play Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H when they participate in the competition which commences in November.
