The Ghana Football Association issue a subtle statement to the people of Ghana

The Ghana Football Association is a governing body of association football, based in Accra. Founded in 1957, it was dissolved with "immediate effect", according to Minister of Sport, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, on 7 June 2018, after the uncovering of a corruption scandal.

"The Ghana Football Association is extremely grateful to the government, the Ghanaian people, the football family, corporate Ghana, our esteemed sponsors and supporters for their unflinching, unwavering and unalloyed support during the Black Stars FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 campaign.

We regret our inability to progress to the knockout phase of the competition and offer our profound apologies to the government, the people of Ghana and all stakeholders across the globe.

We believe that valuable lessons have been learnt from our qualification and participation in the tournament and aim to continue with the positives going into the future.

The Ghana Football Association would in due course inform all stakeholders about any further developments concerning the Black Stars."
