Black Stars to camp in Abu Dhabi ahead of AFCON 2019

The Black Stars will hold a training camp in Abu Dhabi, UAE ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. 

Deputy Sports Minister Perry Okudzeto announced this after Friday's draw in Cairo.

Abu Dhabi has similar weather condition like Egypt in the summer and also provides excellent training facilities.

The Black Stars trained there ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations finals in South Africa.

''Tomorrow [Saturday] we head out to Ismailia to look at the facilities that are available to our teams. From Ismailia, we come back to Cairo. We are going to go off to Abu Dhabi as well to finish our arrangements for camp and then head back to Accra,” Okudzeto told Joy Sports in Cairo.
