Hearts of Oak earn $219,000 from Afriyie Barnieh’s participation at the World Cup


The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) will provide Accra Hearts of Oak of the Ghana Premier League $219,000 in total.

The sum represents Daniel Afriyie Barnieh’s bonus for competing in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

As a result of Afriyie Barnieh’s success with Hearts in the Ghanaian top division and other competitions, Otto Addo, the then-Black Stars coach, included him among the 26 players named for the world’s most prestigious football spectacular.

Overall, the scheme benefited five clubs in Ghana, with the two powerhouses Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko getting the greatest sums ($219,008.70 and $200,757.97, respectively), thanks to the participation of Afriyie Barnieh and Ibrahim Danlad.

The FIFA Club Benefits Programme was created as a way to thank football clubs for their support throughout World Cup tournaments.

The Ghana Football Association will receive the funds and then distribute them to the suitable beneficiary clubs.

After the World Cup, the former captain of Ghana’s U20 and U23 teams transferred to FC Zurich of the Swiss Superliga.
