Ghanaian government to shut down Football Association

Ghana FA


The Ghanaian government has decided to shut down the Ghanaian Football Association following allegations of corruption in the organisation that have surfaced in recent days.

Following a video surfacing of Ghanaian officials accepting bribes before matches, the backlash against the Ghanaian FA has led to the country’s government taking the executive decision to close it down.

The scandal has indicted 66 Ghanaian referees as well as 14 FA officials in taking bribes, with the FA president finding himself in the midst of the allegations. Nyantakyi also has a role within FIFA’s council, who are believed to be monitoring the situation.

The scandal led to a seven member committee discussing the incident today, where they agreed to close down the FA. The following statement was published:

Ghana were scheduled to host the women’s AFCON later this year, with a new host now required. They will also drop out of the U20 World Cup.
