The luck of remuneration has hugely affected the Black Queens team over the years.

Unlike their male counterparts (Black Stars) who would always be camped in plush and luxurious hotels and receive huge bonuses for national assignments, the Queens had to rely on the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence which cannot boast of the best of facilities.
