Support for other national soccer teams apart from the Senior National Soccer Team, the Black Stars has been a problem especially for the women soccer teams.

As the Women national under 20 soccer team (The Black Princesses) gears up for the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup finals next month in Canada, the issue of gathering support to cheer the team has become a source of concern to some women celebrities such as Musician Grace Ashie and Actress Akua Ataa aka. Kyeiwaa.

The two women have not sat on their oars but have initiated moves to rally support with Grace Ashie releasing a song to cheer the team. They are frantically contacting certain influential groups and individuals to gather massive support and possibly contribute funds to airlift support to back the team in Canada.

The duo was in Parliament to meet the Women Caucus to see how best the group could help rally support for this national soccer team which has made the nation proud in previous tournaments.

The Leader of the Women Caucus and First Deputy Majority Chief Whip, Alhajia Mary Salifu Boforo, assured the team that the women group will do everything thing within its capability to ensure that adequate support is given to the Black Princesses.

She noted that the soccer team is out there to make Ghana proud and once again highlighting the country on the world map and it’s important that for such a worthy cause, the team is given the necessary support and attention.

Meanwhile, the Black Princesses are already in Canada to prepare adequately and also acclimatize as they are billed to play the tournament’s opener against hosts Canada in Toronto before engaging Korea DPR and Finland in Group A.
