With nine points at stake in the last three matches, the outcome of those matches will have no impact at the summit of the standings.

The feat was the biggest achievement in the history of the club formed barely a decade ago, before winning the championship and it came as no surprise because they led the league for much of the season.

The Berekum lads represented Ghana in the CAF Champions League and excelled, reaching the Group Stage of the competition as they rubbed shoulders with giants like Al Ahly, Zamalek and TP Mazembe in 2012.
