The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has suspended the ongoing 2022/23 betpawa Ghana Premier League following a court injunction.
It comes after a Motion on Notice for Injunction filed on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, at the Human Rights High Court by Ashantigold SC who served on the GFA’s legal team.
Ashantigold decided to take the GFA to court following their demotion from the top-flight league to the second-tier league due to their alleged involvement in match manipulation.
To that effect, the GFA following receipt of the Motion decided to put the league on hold until the determination of a Motion on Notice for Injunction by the court on October 14, 2022.
“The Association wishes to urge all stakeholders – sponsors and partners and clubs who have invested in the league, players whose livelihood depends on the league, match officials, administrators, officials and supporters of the league and the clubs to remain calm.
“The Association will endeavour to seek redress for the prompt return of the Premier League and ensure that the calendar is not further disrupted in this world cup year,” a communique from the GFA said.
According to the GFA, it has thus communicated its decision to all sponsors, partners, and clubs.
Meaning the topflight League which was scheduled to enter match day four this weekend will not take place.
