The Black Galaxies have arrived in Constantine where they will be based for the Group stage of the 2022 TotalEnergies African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Algeria.

The team has been camping in the capital, Algiers a few days and played two friendly games before departing on Thursday morning to Constantine.

Ghana is making a return to the CHAN competition for the first time in eight years, after missing out of the competition since 2014.

The Local Black Stars have made it to the final of the competition twice in 2009 and 2014, however they have failed to win on both occasions.

The Black Galaxies will face Madagascar, Sudan and Morocco in their Group stage matches respectively in Constantine.

However, Morocco have officially withdrawn from the competition due to a flight standoff with Algeria, meaning Ghana will play two group games instead of three.

The Black Galaxies will take on Madagascar in their first game of the tournament on Sunday, January 15, 2023.
