President Akufo-Addo promised the Black Stars he will be available to watch the team's first game when he hosted players and officials of the Black Stars in a farewell meeting at the Jubilee House on Thursday, May 30, 2019, ahead of the team’s departure to Dubai for a training camp.

“It’s my intention to come and watch your first match on the 25th of June. I will be in Egypt to see you play and if with God’s grace, which I believe he will give us, and we make the final I am going to come there as well and watch, Akufo-Addo told the players when he met them at the Presidency.
