The Private Eye radio also added that last month the South Sudan Football Association (SSFA) appealed to the public to help them raise funds for the Bright Stars to cover their their transport and accomodation cost. The comitee is still hoping of raising funds. It should be noted that if the Bright stars are not present for their first game of the group stages on the 10th of June outside the country they will be automatically disqualified.
