Ghana: Demonstration by Ebusua Dwarfs supporters to claim a place in the Premier League
Ashanti Gold’s demotion continues to bang heads in Ghana. After Eleven Wonders, it’s Ebusua Dwarfs’ turn to claim a seat in the Premier League. Through its supporters, the Cape Coast club expressed its dissatisfaction at the headquarters of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), this Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
Involved in a match-fixing affair with Inter Allies FC during the 2020-2021 season, Ashanti Gold is demoted from the Ghanaian Premier League. To replace him, the GFA has decided that « the three second-placed clubs, Tamale City, Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs FC and Liberty Professionals will play in a three-way league to determine Ashanti Gold’s replacement in the Premier League ». A decision that obviously does not receive the consent of the Ebusua Dwarfs clan.
Members of the Cape Coast club did not go into detail to express their dissatisfaction. Through their supporters, they took to the streets on Wednesday to file their petition with the GFA secretariat. Indeed, they believe that their club is better ranked than any other in the Division One League, apart of course from the promoted ones. According to them, Ebusua Dwarfs therefore deserves to go directly to the Premier League, ahead of Tamale City and Liberty Professionals.

At the start of the week, it was the club of Eleven Wonders who claimed an automatic place for the Premier League. Indeed, the Techiman club finished 16th in the championship the previous season and was relegated to Division One League as the first relegation. But since Ashanti Gold will be demoted, he thinks he can directly earn the vacant spot. On Happy FM radio, one of Eleven Wonders’ administrative officials made it clear, although the club has already sent correspondence to the GFA. This case seems far from over and one wonders what the governing body of Ghanaian football should finally stick to.
