ACCRA, Ghana (AP) Ghana risks being suspended from the 2026 World Cup hosting vote by FIFA after its government said it would disband the national soccer federation amid corruption allegations.
The Ghanaian government says a television journalist’s undercover film exposed ”gross malfunctioning” of the soccer body, including ”widespread fraud, corruption and bribery.”
FIFA typically bans national soccer bodies from international matches and meetings for ”government interference” in how they are run.
Ghana’s soccer president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, is an elected member of FIFA’s ruling council, which meets Sunday in Moscow.
Ghana’s government says Thursday it will announce interim measures to govern the sport and work with FIFA.
