Ghana Football Association Explains Decision To Replace AshantiGold Through Play Off

Director of Communications for Ghana Football Association Henry Asante Twum has explained the decision to organize a play off to determine the team that replaces AshantiGold in the Ghana Premier League. He noted why a club cannot be handpicked to replace the Obuasi-based club. 

“The teams have been notified by writing and they have been told them if they are not interested they should notify the GFA. The venue under consideration is one that cannot favor a particular team. Is a punishment for AshantiGold and Inter Allies. That is demotion. We cannot allow Eleven Wonders to stay. The Executive Committee looked at all these and any other examples.” 

Tamale City, Cape Coast Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs and Liberty Professionals are scheduled for a play off to arrive at a suitable and deserving team to replace AshantiGold in next season’s Ghana Premier League. These have been selected for placing second in their respective zones.

Having notified them, these clubs could make positive use of the opportunity by playing the league form of the play off and book a ticket to the Premier League. They are racing against time as time will not permit them to prepare effectively. The little they are able to do, could become a turning point for them.
