Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko to at least earn $190,000 respectively after the inclusion of Barnieh and Danlad in Ghana’s World Cup squad

Posted by

Ghanaian sides Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are both expected to receive $10,000 per day from FIFA following the inclusion of Daniel Afriyie Barnieh and Danlad Ibrahim in Ghana’s final squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

This is due to FIFA’s Club Benefits Programme which was created to compensate clubs for releasing their players for the showpiece tournament.

The initiative was first launched ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and further extended in 2015 to cover both the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups.

At the World Cup four years ago in Russia, clubs were entitled to $8,530 (£6,440) for each day a player was with their country for the tournament.

For the 2022 Qatar World Cup, clubs will be entitled to $10,000 per player per day, which is around £8,500 per day.

With six days of training before the tournament, and a 13-day group stage, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are guaranteed $190,000 regardless of how Ghana performs at the competition.

The two clubs will earn more should Ghana go beyond the group stages of the competition.

Ghana is billed to face Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in the Group stages of the competition.
