The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have allegedly under-declared the total monies earned from the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Joy Sports have reported.

According to the reports, the country's football governing body announced $7.9 million instead of $9 million.

JoySports report adds that GFA communicated to the Sports Ministry they received $7.9 million after exiting the group stage of the competition.

But in contrast, all countries who exited the competition in the group stage earned $9 million.

According to the report, Ghana earned about $1.1 million less due to fees paid for yellow card acquisition.

Ghana recorded eight yellow cards and the GFA is said to have paid $10,000 each according to the spokesperson Henry Asante Twum.

“We (Ghana FA) paid $80,000 for yellow cards acquisition at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar," he said as quoted by Angel TV.

Meanwhile, Joy Sports claims that the government has given the GFA $2.5 million of the $7.9 million to build a Qatar Legacy Project at the Ghanaian Soccer Centre of Excellence with the remaining $5.4 million paid to the account of the Controller and Accountant General.
