Hundreds of Everton fans planning to follow the club to Ghana next month will lose around £600 each after the game was cancelled. The plans were abandoned after the Ghana FA moved a domestic cup game to clash with their fixture, reports the Liverpool Echo.
In a message on the club's website chief exec Robert Elstone said: "This is extremely disappointing news. The Club had invested a lot of time and effort into making this game a reality and were looking forward to making the trip out to Kumasi.
He added: "We are aware that a small number of our fans may have booked independent travel to Africa. As a club we are obviously not in a position to make compensation payments but we will be discussing the situation internally and with the match organisers."
