Court Orders Ghana’s Football League To Resume

Clubs competing in the Ghana Premier League, can now heave a sigh of relief and prepare to kick start the 2017-2018 seasons as an Accra High court on Thursday, ruled in favour of Ghana Football Association (GFA), following a legal tussle that disrupted the start of the new season.

Great Olympics Club had dragged the GFA to court after they were relegated claiming they had been denied a fair hearing in a case involving an ineligible player in a league game during the season.

The GFA decision to strike out the case for lack of merit had ostensibly ignited recourse to the courts, a situation FIFA vehemently kick against.

The take-off of the new season had to suffer several postponements until Thursday’s ruling.

The court verdict which is similar to what FIFA had earlier ruled ordered the club to abide by the dictates guiding the GFA judicial processes.

The decision leaves Great Olympics in a world of their own as the league will now be at liberty to kick off.
