Ghana Premier League in limbo as a court injunction is placed on it

The start of the 2018 Ghana Premier League is in a limbo after officials of Accra Great Olympics on Monday, secured a court injunction restraining the FA from starting the league.

The Accra based side protested against Bechem United and Elmina Sharks for using an unqualified player last season but they lost the protest.

Olympics were hoping that winning six points from both Elmina Sharks and Bechem United would have helped maintain their Premier League status.

The injunction led to the cancellation of the official launch of the 2017/2018 Ghana Premier League season at the forecourt of the GFA headquarters in Accra which was scheduled for Monday February 5.

Announcing the cancellation of the launching, the spokesperson for the Premier League Board Tamimu Issah admitted receipt of the injunction served on the Ghana Football Association

Spokesperson for Accra Great Olympics Saint Osei in an interview earlier said they want to seek justice for their case.

“As I speak with you the bailiff and our general manager just left the premises of the FA. You know we have been fighting for this for the past four months just for the FA to hear us out but they refused to do that with reasons best known to them,” Osei told Starr Sports

“I don’t think we would have gotten here if they had listened to us…but I believe we will find the appropriate quarters to resolve this issue amicably,” he added.

The Ghana Premier league was scheduled to kick-start this weekend at the various league centers.
