Black Meteors

The Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) is supporting the National Under 23 team with US$8,000 in their quest to see the team qualify for her first Olympics since 2004 in Athens.

The Black Meteors would attempt to secure one of three slots to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo as they play seven other nations in a 2-week tournament in Egypt from the 8 – 22 November 2019.

The Meteors have been drawn against hosts Egypt, Mali and Cameroon with Head Coach Ibrahim Tanko desperate to make history in the North African country.

For GOC Boss Ben Nunoo, these are exciting times for Ghanaian sports.

“In the last week, the football family has elected a new leader [GFA President Kurt Okraku] to steer their affairs after the challenges of the last year-and-a-half. He would definitely love to see the team qualify and we believe our widow's mite would aid in the team’s ambition to secure the Olympic slot,” he told Class Sports.
