Ebusua Dwarfs has written to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) demanding promotion to the Premier League to replace demoted AshantiGold.

Following AshantiGold’s demotion due to match-fixing, the GFA announced there will be a play-off between three Division One League clubs with the winner replacing the Miners for the 2022/23 season. The clubs are Tamale City, Ebusua Dwarfs, and Liberty Professionals.

However, in a petition to the GFA, the Cape-Coast-based side, argued that if the decision to demote AshantiGold had been delivered promptly after the 2020/21 season, they would have had the opportunity to participate in the league.

“It is the case of Dwarfs that several weeks after receipt of the Statements of Defence and Statement of Case from Ashanti Gold SC and Inter-Allies FC, the GFA Disciplinary Committee failed to pronounce judgement on the matter and the FA proceeded to commence the 2021/2022 Premier League. 

“We state that the decision of the Disciplinary Committee regarding the match-fixing allegation if it had expeditiously been delivered, would have afforded Cape Coast Mysterious Dwarfs FC the chance to participate in the 2021/2022 Premier League. 

“This is because the rule is that where it was found by the Disciplinary Committee that the affected parties were guilty of the offence of match-fixing, the imposition of a sanction of demotion or suspension against Ashanti Gold would have meant that a team is brought from the Relegation Zone to add up to the list of participating teams in the 2021/2022 Premier League, in which case, the immediate beneficiary team would be the Cape Coast Mysterious Dwarfs FC.

“However, this process was utterly ignored and the 2021/2022 Premier League season commenced,” excerpts of the letter said.

Meanwhile, Eleven Wonders want to replace AshGold.
