The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to demote Premier League side, AshantiGold Soccer Club to Division Two after the club was found guilty of match manipulation.

The Obuasi-based side is believed to be involved in manipulating the outcome of their 2020/21 league game against Inter Allies last season.

The two sides allegedly played a match of convenience when Ashantigold thrashed Allies 7-0 at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium in a matchday 34 fixture.

After almost a year, the disciplinary committee of the Ghana FA has come out with a verdict following a thorough investigation.

A statement from the Ghana FA said, “AshantiGold will be demoted to the Division Two after being found Guilty of Match in their 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Matchday 34 game against Inter Allies FC.

“The decision takes effect from the 2022/23 league season.”

AshGold currently occupy the 10th position on the league table after 28 games played this season.
