Ghana FA Accused of Match Fixing As Group G Fixtures In Ongoing FIFA World Cup Goes Down To The Wire
The Ghana Football Association has called for police investigations into claims of alleged match-fixing. The British Daily Telegraph and Channel 4's Dispatches allege that a Ghanaian club official and a FIFA agent said they could arrange the rigging of matches involving the national team.
According to the report the two agents presented a contract worth 170 thousand for each match organised ,which the GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi agreed to. But the GFA in a statement has denied the claims saying the contract was for the purchase of rights to friendly matches involving Ghana and not for match fixing. It adds that the GFA did not even sign the contract.
The Association said the matter has been reported to FIFA and the Confederation of African Football, and that a request has also been made to the Ghana Police Service to investigate the two men.
