Ghana Football Association is set to launch #BringBackTheLove campaign for the Black Stars ahead of their upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations next month.

Ghana will host Bafana Bafana of South Africa at home on Thursday, November 14 at the Cape Coast Stadium, before travelling to São Tomé and Príncipe to face them on Monday, November 18.

The campaign is aimed at instigating the passion and rallying for support for the Black Stars following a disappointing 2019 Afcon campaign in Egypt where they were eliminated at the Round of 16 by Tunisia on penalties.
