Obuasi Ashantigold Sporting Club has secured an interlocutory injunction against the start of the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League which was set to kick off today and tomorrow.
Ashantigold was relegated to the Division 2 league at the end of the 2021/22 league season after a case was found against them for match fixing in the 2020/21 season when the Miners defeated Inter Allies 7-0 thanks to some bizarre own goals scored by Inter Allies defender Hashmin Musah under no pressure.
Inter Allies were relegated to Division One at the end of that season after failing to beat the relegation zone. However, a match-fixing allegation was lodged and the two clubs were later found guilty and relegated to the Division Two leagues.
However, Ashantigold have rejected the decision and are protesting it. The decision meant that several officials of the club, players and the club itself has been affected.
According to the court ruling, the league cannot start today and the injunction will last until the next 10 days.
