Ghanaian football fans demand action after Black Stars’ disappointing AFCON campaign


In Accra, Ghana, a wave of discontent swept through the streets on Wednesday as scores of passionate football supporters voiced their frustration over the perceived underperformance of the senior men’s national team, the Black Stars.

Dubbed “Save Ghana Football”, the demonstration was sparked by Ghana’s premature exit from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), which concluded in neighboring Cote d’Ivoire just last week. The protestors, predominantly comprised of sports journalists and ardent football fans, rallied together to demand accountability from the country’s football authorities.

With chants echoing calls for change, demonstrators urged those in leadership roles within Ghana’s football hierarchy to either rectify the issues plaguing the national team or step down from their positions. Nurudeen Hakeem, one of the protesters, articulated the sentiments shared by many, emphasizing the need for immediate action to revitalize the Black Stars.

Echoing similar sentiments, sports journalist Nathan Quao emphasized the collective desire for improvement within Ghanaian football. “We just want better for Ghana football,” Quao remarked, encapsulating the overarching sentiment driving the protest.

As the demonstration unfolded, it underscored the deep-rooted passion and expectations that Ghanaians hold for their beloved national team. With hopes for a brighter future for Ghanaian football, the protest served as a poignant reminder of the unwavering dedication of the nation’s football enthusiasts to see their team thrive on the international stage.
