The Ghana Football Association is set to benefit from a US$ 1.5 billion relief fund from FIFA.
FIFA announced a package for member associations in a bid to help amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ghana FA will hence receive US$ 1million from the World Football Governing body, an amount which could also see the various Clubs Associated with the FA benefiting as well.
“The FIFA Council unanimously approved the COVID‑19 Relief Plan, which was designed by the administration in close cooperation with representatives of the confederations. Across its three stages, this global support plan will make available up to USD 1.5 billion to assist the football community,” part of FIFA’s statement reads.
“A universal solidarity grant of USD 1 million will be made available to all member associations, and an additional grant of USD 500,000 will be allocated specifically to women’s football. In addition, each confederation will receive a grant of USD 2 million.”
The COVID-19 pandemic have made things difficult for Clubs with almost every football League in the World coming to a halt.
Footballers have been hugely affected with several of them going weeks and Months without pay with other being forced to accept a pay cut due to the trying times.
Meanwhile the Nation’s Football governing body is yet to announce the imminent package from FIFA.
Until recently, the game had been on suspension for more than two Months forcing some Leagues to cancel the season.
Belgium, France and the Netherlands all called off the seasons due to the global pandemic.
