The majority of the games played on the final day of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season were fixed, according to AshantiGold’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Albert Commey.

He claimed that games between Hearts of Oak and Real Tamale United, Gold Stars and AshGold, Eleven Wonders and Aduana Stars, and the match between King Faisal and Legon Cities were all manipulated fixtures, in order to ensure the survival of several relegation-threatened clubs.

King Faisal beat Legon Cities by a score of 2-1, while RTU defeated Hearts of Oak with a 4-1 scoreline in Accra. As a result, both King Faisal and RTU avoided relegation. Eleven Wonders’ 2-1 victory at home, however, could not ensure their survival.

Commey also claimed that the match between his side and Bibiani GoldStars, in which Yaw Annor scored two goals to win the golden boot, was fixed.

“The Ghana Premier League was competitive but wasn’t happy with the final day because there were lots of fixed games. RTU never won any match away. AshGold v Bibiani Gold Stars was fixed. Wonders v Aduana was fixed. King Faisal vs Legon Cities was fixed,” he told Sunyani-based Space FM.

“Normally when it gets to that time, clubs want to survive. FA doesn’t know about it. How do you think Hearts of Oak will lose by 4 goals. Did you watch them yesterday? We shouldn’t be hypocrites or we won’t progress. I’m a Hearts fan, I’m telling you.”

If issues like this are not resolved, the nation’s level of football will decline, he added.

“Let us not be hypocrites or else we wouldn’t move forward in Ghana football. I won’t blame the GFA on this, because teams do everything possible to stay in the league during the latter part of the league.”

After 34 play days, Elmina Sharks, WAFA, and Eleven Wonders suffered relegation to Division One League.
