Former Premier League side AshantiGold have withdrawn their application for Injunction against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to halt the playing of the betPawa Premier League at the Appeals Court.
Following the dismissal of a Motion for injunction against the Premier League by a High Court (Human Rights) last month, AshantiGold SC dragged the Ghana FA to the Appeals Court.
The two parities appeared before the Appeals Court on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. During the hearing, the Counsel for AshantiGold SC informed the court of their decision to withdraw the application having apprised themselves of the preliminary legal objection raised by the GFA in its Affidavit in Opposition.
Following the withdrawal, the GFA requested for cost of Thirty Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc30,000) while AshantiGold SC pleaded to pay Three Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc3,000).
The Appeal Court after listening to the plea of AshantiGold SC awarded cost of Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc5,000) against Ashantigold SC.
AshantiGold are contesting the Ghana FA’s decision to demote the club to the Division Two League and also ban its Directors from Ghana football for match fixing.
