Ghanaians living in Canada want raise funds to support the Ghana’s U20 ladies team at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, according to reports.

A group of churches and Muslims are ready to contribute their widow’s mite to help support the team financially.

This gesture is meant to motivate the players-who have not been paid their qualifications bonus-to punch above their weight and progress from the Group.

“It is true we are doing something to support the team. During their first game with Canada, we realized the team’s jersey was not attractive,” Nadia Mohammed, a Ghanaian based on Canada is quoted by

“One Nana Manu here said he could have sponsored the team with more attractive jerseys if he had known before the tournament. So we then decided that we would come together as a community to raise some money to support the team.

“So far we have 25 Ghanaian Churches here in Canada who are organizing the fund-raising. Some Muslim brothers here are also ready to support the agenda.”

Ghana won their opener against hosts Canada 1-0 but were clobbered 3-0 by former champions Korea DPR.

The Princesses will have to win their final Group A match on Tuesday against Finland to stand a chance of qualifying.

    What a shame, the same scammers who tried to use the Black stars to raise funds and enriched themselves are at it again, this is a lie and disgraceful for ghanaians to be do this . They tried the same fund raiser with the black start, only to take them to Washington just to save them with wakye and delayed their flight to Brazil for five hours. There should be some serious investigation.

    This is really sad reading this. Considering how the Black Stars were motivated. Non has been done for the girls. Its sad. Everything football in Ghana is only Black Stars neglecting the rest. Supporters has been refused visas and the government has relaxed about this issue. God bless the Ghanaian community in Canada raising funds for our girls.
