Football fans and well-wishers from across the country will gather at the forecourt of the State House on Saturday, June 8, 2024, to bid their final respects to former Black Stars captain Emmanuel Awuley Quaye Snr.

The late Awuley Quaye Snr., who was captain of the 1978 AFCON-winning Black Stars squad, will be laid to rest in Accra on Saturday.

All funeral activities will be held at the forecourt of the State House from 7:00am.

As a mark of respect to the late national hero and to honour his memory, the Ghana Football Association has ordered for a minute of silence to be observed at all match venues ahead of this weekend’s Ghana Premier League and Division One League matches.

The revered ex-player was best known for his enviable leadership skills during his days as captain of the senior national team.

He also played a pivotal role in the successes of Accra Great Olympics FC during the 1970s.

His commitment, character, leadership qualities, and passion for club and country will forever remain etched in our memories.
