The National Sports Authority grossed GHS 221,020 (about $101,970) in ticket sales from Ghana’s win over Zambia in the 2014 World Cup qualifier last Friday.
The amount was realized from the sale of tickets with prices ranging from GHS 4-20.
The Baba Yara Stadium recorded a full house with some ticket holders denied entry over fear of overcrowding.
The overwhelming support has now translated in one of the record harvests for the National Sports Authority who are managers of all state owned stadia in Ghana.
The NSA will however be doing further auditing to realize its net profit after deducting all expenses.
“I have just been given the figure by the accounts department and it stood at 2021,020,” the NSA’s Public Relations Officer Hamid Issaka told Radio Gold.
“But unfortunately we weren’t able to do all the checks and balances in Kumasi so we have asked that everything is brought down here in Accra.
“So work has started on it so we can take all expenses out of the total figure in order to get our net.”
Another record attendance is expected in Ghana’s next home match in the playoffs of the World Cup qualifiers against a yet to be determined opposition.
