Match fixing scandal: See the complete list of Ashantigold players banned
AshantiGold SC

The Ghana Football Association Disciplinary Committee has banned 14 AshantiGold players as part of tough sanctions imposed on the club for match-fixing.

The Miners were found guilty of fixing their Ghana Premier League match against Inter Allies last season and have been relegated to the third-tier league beginning in 2022/23.

And because the players were involved, they have been barred from all football-related activities.
