The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has set a date to hear former Fifa executive council member Kwesi Nyantakyi to appeal his lifetime ban for corruption.
The court says the hearing is on July 4. Verdicts typically follow within a few months.
Nyantakyi was filmed accepting $65,000 in cash from an undercover reporter posing as businessmen seeking favours.
He resigned days before the 2018 World Cup as the senior vice president of Confederation of African Football and president of the Ghana Football Association.
Nyantakyi also left FIFA’s ruling committee, which paid an annual $250,000 stipend. He was one of Africa’s elected delegates since 2016.
FIFA’s ethics committee found him guilty last October on charges of bribery, corruption, and conflict of interest. Nyantakyi was also fined 500,000 Swiss francs ($504,000).
