The camp base of the Black Stars in Doha, Qatar, will not be open to the media and public, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has said.

The decision follows a directive by the coach to have a serene camping atmosphere devoid of distraction during the team’s preparation for the upcoming TotalEnegies Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

However, the media will be granted access to the players and the head coach on January 6, before the team departs for Cameroon on January 7, 2022.

The Black Stars will camp in Doha for a period of 17 days to prepare for the tournament, which kicks off on Sunday, January 9, 2021.

Ghana are expected to play three friendly matches in Qatar before they emplane to Cameroon for the tournament.

The Black Stars are in the same Group with Morocco, Comoros and Gabon and will open their campaign against the Atlas Lions (Morocco) on January 10, 2022.
