The Ministry of Youth and Sports has named Kenpong Travel and Tours, a leading travel agency in the sports sector, as the official travel agency for Ghana’s campaign for Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In a release issued on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, the ministry said it selected Kenpong Travel and Tours as the official travel agency for the World Cup after careful consideration.
“As part of efforts to streamline preparations for Ghana’s participation in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Ministry of Youth and Sports wishes to announce to the general public, particularly football fans, that upon careful consideration, the ministry has appointed Kenpong Travel and Tours Company as the official travel agent for the World Cup,” the statement said.
The statement further explained that, as the official travel agency for the World Cup, Kenpong Travel and Tours will be working together with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Ghana Football Association to facilitate travel arrangements for Ghanaians who wish to travel to watch the World Cup in November.
The statement further advised fans who wish to travel to Qatar for the World Cup to contact the official travel agency, Kenpong Travel and Tours.
Ghana’s qualification to the World Cup, after dumping arch rivals, Nigeria, in a thrilling play-off, has whetted Ghanaian fans’ appetite to stage a return to the World Cup in Qatar.
But, there had been silence over news on ticketing and travel arrangements, leaving fans in limbo.
The announcement of Kenpong as an official travel agent would, therefore, be a welcome relief to Ghanaian fans.
