The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has demoted Ashanti Gold Sporting Club to Division Two, Ghana’s 3rd tier league, after being found guilty of match-fixing.

The action taken against Ghana Premier League giants relates to a game at the end of last season when Ashanti Gold humiliated Inter Allies by 7-0.

Hashmin Musah, Allies defender scored two own goals and later confessed his action was to spoil a bet placed on the said match.

Dr. Kwaku Frimpong, the club’s president and his son, Emmanuel Frimpong who is the club’s Chief Executive Officer, have also been sanctioned from football activities for 10 years and 8 years respectively.
