This means that all 32 countries will be receiving an amount of 12 US dollars in total before the start of the tournament to start as a token for qualification and participation.

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.

Personally, I think, when the money is received, it could be used as a source of motivation to serve our players well. Also, the money can be used to promote football in the country, change our pitches to somehow international standards.

For that matter, proper accountability and transparency are needed instead of telling us Kweku ananse stories.
