Ghana Premier League matches to go ahead this weekend – GFA

Written by Amenorhu Kwaku

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed that the Ghana Premier League will return this weekend after a two-week hiatus.

The league was cleared to resume after a high court nullified an injunction filed by Ashantigold Sporting Club.

Following the court’s decision, the Executive Council of the GFA announced that matches will be played this weekend.

The Council believes that resuming the league as soon as possible will be in the best interest of the various stakeholders.

The GFA said it had contacted the various clubs to discuss their plans to continue the campaign this weekend.

“The Executive Council in their meeting after the court decision were of the view that the betPawa Premier League resumes immediately to avert further loss to stakeholders,” the GFA’s statement said.
“The GFA has further engaged the betPawa Premier League clubs for the resumption of the season.”

Ashgold sought an injunction of Ghana’s top-flight after they were found guilty of match manipulation and demoted to the second division.

The club claimed it was not given a fair hearing by the GFA’s Disciplinary Committee.
