There have been several reports that the four Africa Cup of Nations trophies won by Ghana in 1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982 are reportedly missing.
Saddick Adams, an Angel FM sports journalist in Ghana, said the replica’s AFCON trophies cannot be traced.
The Sports Writers Association of Ghana’s (SWAG) have also tried to track the awards but they were told that they were missing.
“You know that CAF gives you a replica when you win the trophy but then, you get the golden one when you win it for keeps [three times].
Before the 2019 AFCON, I asked questions about the four trophies that we have won and I was told that we lost the trophies during the Coup when the National Sports Council Office was ransacked,” Saddick Adams said.
Another Ghanaian journalist, Yaw Ampofo Jr, took to Twitter to sound the alarm as well.
“The four Africa Cup of Nations trophies won by Ghana in 1963, 1965, 1978 and 1982 are reportedly missing,” he said.
CAF rules stipulates that teams who have won the competition, only get to keep the replica’s permanently. However, they will be allowed to keep the original after winning the throphy three times.
