Wa African United reported Techiman City to the GFA for alleged match-fixing to influence their match day 22 result last season.

According to the Ethics Committee , Wa African United reported the agreement they had with Techiman City because the Techiman-based club filed a protest against their club and they  were fined GH¢3,000 and suffered six points deduction. They were unhappy Techiman City who initiated the act were going to compete in the premier league, but now, they are okay with the decision.

"I am not surprised with the final decision from the Ethics Committee. In fact the first ruling (to grant Techiman City stay of execution) surprised me," Chief Executive Officer, Nana Gyamerah Kwabena Yiakwan II told Joy FM.

"But when we appeared before the Ethics Committee,  per the evidence we presented, we were not expecting anything different from the earlier ruling.
