The Japan Football Association said Thursday a revenue of ¥25 million ($227,250) raised from this month’s charity match between Japan’s Under-23 team and Ghana will be donated to quake-hit Kumamoto Prefecture.

Japan’s U-23s won 3-0 last week in Tosu, in nearby Saga Prefecture, almost a month after a series of big earthquakes first hit Kumamoto on April 14 and claimed 49 lives.
