GHANA SPENT $5.1 MILLION AT QATAR 2022 WORLD CUP – Sports Minister

According to the sports minister Mustapha Ussif the Black Stars’ World Cup expenses in Qatar in 2022 totaled $5.1 million.

In his remarks to the House of Commons, he mentioned that the Ministry had agreed to award the team qualification bonuses rather than winning bonuses.

After being placed in a group alongside Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay, Ghana was eliminated from the World Cup in the group stages.

The team led by Otto Addo managed to defeat South Korea but fell to Portugal and Uruguay, finishing last in the group.

The Sports Ministry had predicted that the Black Stars’ group stage campaign would cost $8 million prior to the competition.

However, he has now confirmed that $5,171, 840 was spent on the team in Qatar, thereby saving almost $3 million on the initially estimated budget.

“Our estimated budget at the group stage was $8.1 million. Out of this estimated budget Mr. Speaker, our total expenditure for the group stage participation amounted to $5,171, 840,” Mustapha Ussif said, as quoted by Citisportsonline.

“These expenditures covered appearance free, per diem, flight arrangements, medicals, equipment logistics, and hospitality.”
