Match-Fixing scandal: Inter Allies appeal demotion to Division Two League and GHS100k fine

Published on: 20 May 2022

Inter Allies have appealed their relegation to the Division Two League after the Ghana Football Association Disciplinary Committee found them guilty of match-fixing.

The Division One League side will play in the second Division Two League at beginning of next season together with Ashantigold.

Last season's Ghana Premier League between the two sides was fixed, according to the Disciplinary Committee. Ashgold won the game 7-0, with an Inter Allies player scoring two own goals on purpose.

Aside the demotion, Inter Allies have also been fined 100,000 Ghana cedis.

In a statement released by the club, Inter Allies said the appeal was against the demotion as well as a GHS100,000 fine imposed against the club by the GFA Disciplinary Committee.

"Inter Allies on Tuesday filed a formal appeal with the Ghana Football Association's Appeals Committee, challenging the match manipulation sanction," the club said in a statement on Facebook.

"Our appeal is against the decision of the D.C. sanctioning Inter Allies FC by demoting the club to the Division Two League and the payment of a GHC 100,000.00 fine".
