Court delays AshantiGold match-fixing verdict until August 21

Both AshantiGold and the Ghana Football Association were waiting for the verdict on Tuesday, July 18, 2023.

AshantiGold SC’s fate of playing in the Ghana Premier league next season is still hanging as Accra High Court has postponed its verdict on the club’s match-fixing case until August 21, 2023.

Both AshantiGold and the Ghana Football Association were waiting for the verdict on Tuesday, July 18, 2023.

The case revolves around Ashantigold’s challenge against their relegation to Division Two last year following their conviction for match manipulation by the GFA’s Disciplinary Committee.

AshantiGold are hoping that the court will overturn their demotion and compel the country’s football governing body to provide them with a fair hearing.

The delay in the verdict prolongs the uncertainty surrounding Ashantigold’s future and the outcome of the case. Both the club and the GFA will have to wait until August to learn the court’s final ruling, which will have significant implications for Ghanaian football.

Meanwhile, during the 29th GFA Congress held in Kumasi on July 10, a decision was taken for AshantiGold to remain suspended from participating in Ghana football.
