The Black Stars of Ghana Have Begun Their First Training Session In Kumasi
Today marks the start of the Black Stars training camp in Kumasi.
With 24 players hitting the training ground on day one, the team, led by the Chris Hughton, is gearing up for the Africa Cup of Nations in Cote D’Ivoire 2023.
The first day of training saw a strategic shift from the iconic Baba Yara Sports Stadium to the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports Complex at Abrankese. The technical team’s decision to relocate was driven by the commitment to optimal performance, given the unfavorable state of the pitch at Baba Yara.

Following a thorough inspection of both the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports Complex, the decision to switch venues underscores the meticulous planning that goes into preparing for such a prestigious tournament.
The 24 players who hit the ground running on Tuesday brought a mix of experience and youthful vigor, promising an exciting blend of talent for Ghanaian football enthusiasts. With names like Abdul Fatawu Hamid, Majeed Ashimeru, and Osman Bukari in the mix, expectations are soaring for the Black Stars.
As the team gears up for AFCON 2023, a crucial international friendly against Namibia awaits on Monday, January 8, 2024. This match will serve as a litmus test for the Black Stars, offering fans a taste of the excitement and determination that will define their quest for glory in Cote D’Ivoire.
