The Federal Police agency says in a Thursday statement that it's looking into the possible misappropriation of about $3.5 million that the Ministry of Sports had set aside for the championship.

The statement says preliminary investigations point to over-billing for goods and services and payments for services not rendered and goods never delivered.

The confederation had no immediate comment.
