The Black Stars of Ghana will pitch camp in Dubai ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Fgyty, confirmed GFA Normalization Committee chairman Dr. Kofi Amoah.

He revealed that the coach Kwesi Appiah's side will begin preparations in the United Arab Emirates, where they will play South Africa and a yet-to-be-named opponent.

"He [Kwesi Appiah] has the total support of the president. We are camping in Dubai, where we will play two friendly matches. After that, we will march to Egypt for the tournament and I can say on authority that the Black Stars will reside in the best hotels in Egypt,'' he said on Good Evening Ghana.

"We have visited where the team will be training and everything is in place. Everything has been made available to ensure Ghana win the AFCON in Egypt.

"I'll only urge Ghanaians to support Kwesi Appiah when he announces his squad because he will need the support of every Ghanaian to win the trophy.''

Ghana will commence a non-residential training camp in Accra before heading to the Gulf for acclimatization and preparations ahead of the tournament in June.
