Ghana FA denied voting at FIFA Congress after government travel ban
Ghana Football Association members will not be able to join the FIFA Congress on Wednesday in Russia that is set for voting on the host of the 2026 FIFA World Cup due to a travel ban imposed by Ghana government.
The Ghanaian government decided to dissolve its national football association following a video surfacing of Ghanaian officials accepting bribes before matches.
Subsequently, officials who were supposed to represent the GFA at the 68th FIFA Congress instead of Nyantakyi to cast their votes to elect the host nation for the 2026 World Cup, were banned from traveling by the government.
FIFA will decide the hosts of the 2026 World Cup in a global voting on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, in Switzerland with Morocco representing the African continent competing against a joint bid by the Canadian Soccer Association, the Mexican Football Association and the United States Soccer Federation.
