RTU promoted to the Ghana Premier league

Real Tamale United, one of the country's oldest clubs, has secured a sensational return to the Ghana Premier League after defeating Unity FC on Sunday afternoon.

RTU defeated Unity FC 2-0 at the Aliu Mahama Stadium in Tamale to secure their return to Ghana's top flight after Bofoakwa drew 0-0 with Berekum Arsenal at the Golden City Park.

RTU edged out Bofoakwa for promotion with a better head-to-head record after drawing 0-0 with the Otedola Boys in Sunyani and winning 2-0 in Tamale in the reverse fixture.

RTU was relegated from the Ghana Premier League in April 2013 after a 4-1 loss to New Edubiase United with seven games remaining. It has been eight(8) years since they were demoted.

This promotion almost turn Tamale township upside down. Some of the funs were on foot, others on moto cycle and in cars singing and chanting various morale songs. This victory i believe will economically boost activities in Tamale.
