The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has approved the change in name by the Ghana Premier League club – Wa All Stars to Legon Cities Football Club.
In August 2019, the club wrote to the Football Association requesting to re-name Wa All-Stars’ to transfer ownership from the former GFA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi to ex-Black Stars defender, John Paintsil and his partners.
After deliberation with the club’s management, the Wa based club will now be known as Legon Cities Football Club per the approval from the GFA.
The change in name has taken effect at a time when the club has in recent times undergone some transition after its sale to the new owners.
Portions of an official statement released by the GFA acknowledging the decision by the club read:
“We acknowledge receipt of a letter from Wa All Stars Football Club dated 23rd December, 2019 requesting for approval for change of your club’s name from Wa All Stars Football Club to Legon Cities Football Club.
"The GFA also acknowledges receipts of documents on the change of name to Legon Cities Football Club (an incorporated company) from the Registrar General’s Department attached to your request submitted to the GFA under the Companies Act, 2019 (Act 992).
"Consequently, the GFA hereby approves the change of name from Wa All Stars Football Club to Legon Cities Football Club."
