Appeals Committee overturns Ethics Committee's decision to demote Techiman City

Ghana Football Association (GFA) Appeals Committee has overturned the Ethics Committee’s decision to demote Techiman City to the country’s third-tier football for match-fixing during last season’s second-tier league.

On February 3, 2016, the Ethics Committee in their ruling demoted Techiman City and Wa African Utd to the country’s third-tier league after the two clubs were found guilty for match-fixing and bribery.

However, Techiman City in order to protect their premiership status filed for stay of execution and appealed against the Ethics Committee ruling.

And a letter released on Friday February 19 February indicates that the Techiman-based Club has been cleared of the bribery allegation leveled against them that informed the Appeals committee to demote them to the division 2 of Ghana football league, hence could officially feature in the 2015/16 domestic top-flight.


Techiman City will make their premier league debut at home to Berekum Chelsea on Sunday 21 February, 2016.
