The national football team, the Bright Stars will finally travel to Burundi this week ahead of their AFCON tie with the Burundian side.

The government failed to private tickets for the team this week risking the team being disqualified from the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

This evening the South Sudan Football Association through their Facebook page announced that Francis Amin, a candidate for the seat of SSFA Presidency and Dr. Tong Machar, the Secretary-General of the South Sudan Olympic Committee will be providing the air tickets to the national team players.

The team will depart tomorrow at 1pm for Burundi in preparation for the match to be played on Saturday.
