The betPawa Premier League is currently suspended following the court case between Ashgold SC and the Ghana Football Association.

Ashgold SC were demoted to the third tier of Ghana football after being found guilty of match manipulation in the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League campaign.

According to a ruling by the Ghana FA Disciplinary Committee, AshantiGold manipulated the results of their matchday 34 match against Inter Allies FC.

President of the club, Kwaku Frimpong and CEO Emmanuel Frimpong were handed long-term bans for their involvement in the said match manipulation.

The Obuasi-based side appealed the Disciplinary Committee’s decision to ban the club and the officials but the initial ruling was upheld by the Appeals Committee.

The Miners took the case to the Human Rights High Court to seek redress and the league has been put on hold for two weeks now following the Motion on Notice for Injunction filed against the Ghana FA.
