King Faisal has officially been relegated from the betPawa Premier following the announcement of the verdict of the appeal against the Disciplinary Committee’s (DC) decision in their protest case against Tamale City FC.
King Faisal were condemned to the Access Bank Division One League after finishing in 17th place in the just ended season. The InshaAllah boys finished the season with 42 points, 3 points behind 15th placed Accra Lions.
Nevertheless, the club had hopes of staying in the league due to a pending appeal against the Disciplinary Committee’s decision in their protest case against Tamale City FC.
King Faisal were hoping that the Appeals Committee will overturn the decision of the Disciplinary Committee in regards to their protest against Tamale City for using an unqualified player in their betPawa Premier League Matchweek 30 at the Aliu Mahama Stadium.
The Appeals Committee however affirmed the Disciplinary Committee’s decision, confirming King Faisal’s relegation to the Access Bank Division One League.
The verdict from the Appeals Committee read: “The Appeals Committee has also dismissed King Faisal FC’s appeal against the Disciplinary Committee decision in their protest case against Tamale City FC.”
“Affirming the Disciplinary Committee’s decision, the Appeals Committee charged the GFA Prosecutor to investigate the registration of player Jireh Kojo Nissi and prosecute all guilty parties.”
“The Appeals Committee also ruled that the 2021/22 Division One League season registration of Jireh Kojo Nissi should be expunged from the records of the GFA since it was later in time to the registration of Isaac Mensah,” it added.
