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.
