Ghana Football Association has demoted Inter Allies FC to division two.
The decision takes effect from the 2022/2023 league season.
On 17th July 2021, Ashantigold SC played Inter Allies FC in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Matchday 34 game at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium. After the match, there were several reports within the local and international football space that the match was fixed to fulfill a correct score of 5 goals to 1 in favor of Ashantigold SC. The match eventually ended in 7 goals to 0 against Inter Allies FC.
A video extract of the match circulated on various social media platforms showing a player of Inter Allies FC scoring two own goals and also showed a lackluster attitude of players on the field of play.
Sportradar, a Swiss-based international company‟s fraud detection system, is a unique service that identifies betting-related manipulation in sports globally for several leagues through its vast amounts of data reported that there was a strong pre-match
betting and telltale signs of fraud on the said match.
The GFA Compliance & Integrity Office together with the GFA Prosecutors investigated the matter and by Article 34(5) of the GFA Premier League Regulations preferred charges against the two clubs and referred Inter Allies FC to the Disciplinary Committee.
Below is the decision of the GFA Disciplinary Committee.
