AshantiGold demoted to Division Two for match manipulation.

The Ghana Football Association has demoted Premier League side, AshantiGold SC 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 read, “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.”
