Women’s football in Ghana will receive a US$ 500,000 grant after FIFA announced a COVID-19 Relief plan to its Member Associations.
A FIFA Council meeting held on Thursday via video conferencing reached a unanimous decision to provide financial assistance to all 211 Members Associations.
Each member association will receive a solidarity grant of US$ 1 million and an additional US$ 500,000 will be allocated specifically to women’s football.
In addition, each confederation will receive a grant of US$ 2 million.
In a bid to ensure proper governance and follow up of the plan, strict controls on the use of the funds have been put in place with a FIFA COVID-19 Relief Plan steering committee established to supervise the administration of the scheme.
