The World Cup is just around the corner and everyone seems to be talking about Group G, “Group of Death,” which includes Germany, Portugal, Ghana, and the United States. Here in Washington DC, with one of the largest Ghanaian diaspora, there is a lot of buzz in town about the Black Stars, the Ghanaian national football team.
Scores of reasons to be excited! After playing South Korea in Miami, Florida, the Black Stars will make a visit to Washington tomorrow, before heading to Brazil for the upcoming games.
During our visit to the Embassy of Ghana in the United States, we spoke with Mr. Jojo Bruce-Quansah, Head of the Information section at the Embassy, regarding the preparations to host the team in Washington DC. “We are very proud of our players, and look forward to having them in town. There will be a press conference on June 10th, here at the Embassy of Ghana, giving an opportunity to our diaspora members and the Black Star fans to meet the team and show their support,” he stated. The press conference will be followed by a fundraising dinner and a send-off party later in the evening. Check out the schedule here.
