The Black Stars of Ghana are set to earn $12 million after securing qualification to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.

This comes after Ghana edged Nigeria on Tuesday on an away goal rule at the Moshood Abiola Stadium to pick up one of the five African slots for the Mundial.

The Black Stars will receive $2 million from FIFA for preparations ahead of the tournament and another $10 million as a participation fee (Group Stage).

This is the minimum amount that all 32 teams that qualify for the tournament will receive from the World football governing body.

Meanwhile, teams that reach the round of 16 stage will receive $12 million.

Quarter-finalists will earn $18 million, while the team that finishes in third place will earn $30 million from FIFA.

The runner-up in the 2022 World Cup will receive $40 million and the winner of the tournament will receive $50 million.

The 2022 World Cup will begin on November 21, 2022, and end on December 18, 2022.

The Black Stars qualified for three successive World Cup tournament’s in 2006, 2010 and 2014 but missed out on the 2018 edition in Russia.

After missing out in the last edition, the Black Stars are back on the biggest stage in world football.
