Aduana face Ghana Premier League relegation for FA violation
Aduana Stars could be plunged from the Ghana Premier League after a charge to forfeit two league matches they played last season.
Three Premier League clubs, Ebusua Dwarfs, Accra Hearts of Oak and King Faisal petitioned the Ghana Football Association that Aduana refused to pay a fine within of the stipulated fourteen (14) days period.
The club has been charged for their violation of Articles 34(1)(L) and 39(8)(b) of the Ghana Football Association General Regulations (GFA Regulations).
According to the statement of offence: “Aduana Stars, failed and refused to pay a cost of Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢5,000) imposed on by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association within of the stipulated fourteen (14) days period after the cost was communicated to them on March 21, 2014 by the Ghana Football Association before playing two First Capital Plus Premier League matches against Hearts of Lions on April 16, 2014 and Berekum Chelsea on April 20, 2014 after the expiry of the stipulated fourteen (14) days after the cost was communicated to the them by the Ghana Football Association.”
Aduana Stars have until 5pm on Thursday, July 31, 2014 to respond to the charge.
If they fail, they will be deducted six points and that Aduana will join Amidaus Professionals and Ebusa Dwarfs as the three relegated clubs.
King Faisal, who finished third-bottom, will profit from that and retained in the Ghana top-flight.
