Ten Ashanti Gold SC players have been charged for facilitating and participating in a fixed match.
Last season, wild allegations popped up after the Miners club thrashed relegated Inter Allies FC in a Matchday 34 encounter of the Ghana Premier League campaign.
After several weeks of investigations, the Prosecutor of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has charged ten players of Ashantigold SC for violating Article 34(5)(a) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.
“The players have been charged for facilitating and participating in the playing of a fixed match or a match of convenience during the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Week 34 match between Ashantigold SC and Inter Allies FC at the Len Clay Stadium on July 17,” a communique on the website of the Ghana FA has said.
The players charged include Amos Addai, Amos Kofi Nkrumah, DaCosta Empem, Emmanuel Owusu, Frank Akoto and Mohammed Bailou.
The others are, Solomon Afriyie, Stephen Owusu Banahene, Moses Kwame and Eric Esso.
All the players served with the charges are expected to submit their Statements of Defence on or before Monday, September 27 after which the GFA Disciplinary Committee will adjudicate their cases respectively.
