Cheetah FC will face off with Kenpong Academy in the final of the Central Region Division One middle league.
Cheetah secured a place in the final after winning a protest against their semifinal opposition Betenase. The Kasoa-based side initially lost the semifinal clash 1-0 and that’s was largely due to poor and incompetent officiating.
Shamefully, we lost our semifinal game yesterday by a goal to nil, (1-0) more than 5 yellow cards and a red card to our head coach we couldn’t understand— CHEETAH FOOTBALL CLUB (@CHEETAH_FC) June 28, 2022

However, Cheetah FC filed a protest against Betenase for using an unqualified player. The Disciplinary Committee after sitting on the case concluded that Betenase breached Article 33 (1e) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Regulations.
The rule stipulates that a team commits an offence punishable by forfeiture of a match where it fields an unqualified player(s) or team official(s).
In respect to the offense and per to Article 33 (2) of the GFA regulations, Betenase were declared losers and accordingly Cheetah was awarded a 3-0 win.
Kenpong Academy on the other hand secured a place in the final after beating GAP Academy 2-0 in the semifinal on Monday.
Cheetah FC will square off with Kenpong Academy in the final at the Ajumako Asaasan Park on Wednesday, June 29 at 3:00 pm, with the winner securing a place in the 2022/23 Division One League.
