Bibiani Goldstars, Real Tamale United (RTU) and Accra Lions have all qualified to play in the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League (GPL) after topping their respective zones in the just-ended Division One League season.

Goldstars, which is coached Kobina Amissah, booked their place in the top-flight with 65 points two weeks ago.

The coronation of Goldstars as Zone Two champions was held on Sunday at Bibiani amid fanfare among the club officials, technical team, playing body and the massive supporters from Bibiani and its environs.

An amount of GH¢50,000 prize money, a trophy and medals were presented to the players and the technical team members.

At the Accra Stadium last Saturday, the coronation of Accra Lions as Zone Three champions also took place after an exhibition match with a lower-tier side, following the expulsion of Amidaus Professionals from the DOL.

Lions were also presented with a prize money of GH¢50,000, a trophy and medals by officials of the Division One League Board (DOLB).

In Zone One, RTU beat closest contenders, Bofoakwa Tano, at the finishing line yesterday after beating Unity FC 2-0 in a local derby at the Aliu Mahama Stadium in Tamale to finish tops with 65 points.

Bofoakwa, who were hoping to win the zone at the expense of RTU, were held to a pulsating goalless drawn game by Berekum Arsenals at the Golden City Park yesterday.
