Ghana’s beach volleyball team is appealing to well-meaning Ghanaians for support as preparations for the world championships in August draw near.

The team secured qualification to the Beach Volleyball U-19 World Championships to be held in Shangluo, China after winning Silver at the Africa U-19 championships in La Cote d’Ivoire.

The duo of Emmanuel Abbey and Ebenezer Anyetei lost to Sierra Leone in the final.

Speaking on Onua TV‘s Maakye Sports on Thursday, July 4, founder of Super Volleyball Championship Mohammed Awudu Aputeog appealed for sponsorship to prepare for the world championships.

“Currently, we are looking at the administrative side and that boils down to money matters,” he stressed, indicating, however, that there is “extremely” positive feedback from the Ministry of Youth and Sports after they paid a courtesy call, led by the Ghana Volleyball Association President George Tettey.

“The Chief Director was really happy about it and all of that and charged us to file our requests early enough for the Ministry to work on them.”

Emmanuel Abbey reiterated the call for support.

“Right now, we are hoping for the Association and government to support us because we should train and at least we should go for camping,” he opened up to host Alfred Takyi Mensah.

“You know if you are in the camp, you just train. All you think about is training.”

Anyetei revealed that they have set themselves a target of winning a medal at the championships, which starts in August and end in September.
