More Than Just A Game…….Part 2

It’s party time why? Because the Black stars are in town on the 29th and celebration is one of the things we Ghanaians do best.

Ghanafuo we know how to party and Tuesday 29th March at Wembley stadium will be no exception. We have a responsibility of making the occasion a special one and the Black stars are counting on our support.

No disrespect to the England fans as we all know they are very passionate about football. However it’s going to be interesting to see the contrast between the two sets of fans on the night. The Ghanaian fans awash with the bright colours of our flag (green, red & gold), bringing a carnival atmosphere to the stadium, as opposed to the traditional England way of chants and applause.  For me there is only going to be one winner.

There is a good possibility that the English might get out sung on their own patch! We will have to wait and see but the showdown on the pitch will not be the only battle commencing that evening. Those of you who have bought tickets in the England section how confident of you are standing up and cheering amongst the home fans if Ghana scores?, decisions, decisions, decisons…..

The festivities are likely to continue after the match and I have already heard whispers through the grapevine about several spontaneous after parties happening in the area. However one after party which is definitely on is the the Ghana UK Based Achievements Awards (GUBA) Celebration Event, to honour the Ghana Black Stars at the Abacus bar, 24 Cornhill London EC3V 3ND. Some members of the Ghana squad will be in attendance so should be really good night.

I am sure whatever we do before, during and after the game, we (the fans) will represent all that is good about Ghanaian culture and leave a positive mark on Wembley and the English fans as a whole.

You can rest assured that whatever the result of the match: win, lose or draw. It’s going be one big celebration regardless, Ghana Style !. Let’s make this a day to remember.

England v Ghana: More Than Just A Game – Pt 1

 

In less than two weeks England will take to the field against Ghana in front of a sell out crowd at Wembley stadium. The anticipation amongst Ghanaians is high and rightly so it will be the first time England have played Ghana in an International match at Wembley and it will be a chance for Ghana to test themselves against established Premier league players.

For me this is a statement of intent from the Ghanaian FA to take the national team to the next level, a statement which has been backed unanimously by the Ghanaian Diaspora in the UK.  Twenty one thousand of us to be exact (the biggest International away crowd at Wembley ever !) who will be there cheering the black stars on come March 29 and you can guarantee there will be thousands of Ghanaians up and down the country watching elsewhere in their homes and at bars etc.

The fact that the English Football Association have chosen to play this friendly in between crucial European championship qualifying games against Wales ( 26 March) and Switzerland ( 04 April) is a huge compliment to Ghana. It shows England view Ghana as an emerging power not just in African football but world football and see the game as useful to England in preparing for their qualifiers.

But as the build up to the match begins to the match itself another issue needs to be considered; this match is not only a chance for Ghanaians to go out and support the black stars but also to represent the Ghanaian culture. It’s a chance for us to bring the passion, vibrancy and goodwill of Ghana to where many regard is the home of football: Wembley Stadium.

The game will also be shown live on terrestrial TV (ITV 1), so we need to be looking on point and representing Ghana to the fullest. We need to have our flags, ME FIRI GHANA TOPS, black star shirts and quite frankly anything that bears Ghana’s name on it.

Let’s not also forget that this event will see a huge gathering of Ghanaian people in one place. Probably the biggest Ghanaian gathering the UK has ever seen. I don’t think an Independence rave, Party in the park or your aunties wedding has ever brought in a crowd of twenty one thousand Ghanaians.

People this is big! Do not underestimate this event. Men and women could meet their future partners, babies could be born late that evening (If we win!) and Asamoah Gyan could be doing his skank live at Wembley stadium.  I personally know families who are travelling together to the game; aunties have already prepared their Tupperware ready to stuff them full of jelloff.

It’s going to be an event to remember and if you can’t be at Wembley then make sure you’re watching, preferably in a Ghanaian establishment. Let’s all represent for our culture on the 29th.

Black stars we stand ready.

England vs Ghana: Me FiRi GHANA Clothing

So its more than 10 years since England have “invited” a football team from the African continent to play them at the historical, legendary, now 21st century stadium of Wembley. Now, when we Ghanaians are about to chop some Banku, Jellof, Yam or whatever your heart may at this point desire, traditionally we invite the immediate people around us to chop with us, right?

We don’t know about you, but if someone invites us to chops some of their Papaye fried rice for instance it may bring a tear to our eye. Why you may ask?? Well because that indicates a sign of respect, an appreciation of who we are… Well, we just had to breakdown this historic occasion with food, to illustrate the magnititude of the occassion on March 29th with the match between England and Ghana.
