The Accra Human Rights Court has issued a revised judgement in a match-fixing case between AshantiGold and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Monday, August 21, 2023, has been set as the new decision date. Both sides were disappointed as they eagerly awaited a decision on Tuesday, July 18th. The case revolves around Ashantigold’s challenge to being relegated to the second tier last year after the GFA Disciplinary Committee found them guilty of match-fixing.
Obuasi’s club hopes the court will overturn their relegation and force the National Football Association to give them a fair trial.
At the 29th GFA Congress on Monday, July 10th, in Kumasi, it was decided that Ashantigold would remain banned from participating in Ghanaian football. This decision further strengthened the club’s determination to seek justice through the legal system.
The delay in sentencing extends uncertainty about Ashantigold’s future and the outcome of the case. The club and GFA will have to wait until August to hear the final court decision, which will have a significant impact on Ghanaian football.
Meanwhile, football fans and stakeholders continue to follow the proceedings closely and eagerly await a resolution to the match-fixing dispute and its impact on sport in the country.
