Ghana's No. 1

Match-fixing Scandal: Ghana FA place travel ban on AshGold, Inter Allies players and officials

Published on: 21 July 2021

The Ghana Football Association has place a travel ban on players and officials of Ashanti Gold and International Allies following a suspicious match-fixing plot which has dominated headlines globally.

The Ghana FA is moving swiftly to deal with the canker which has the propensity to damage football in the West African nation.

Football in the African nation has been thrown into anger and chaos after a player of Inter Allies scored deliberate  two own goals and later claimed he did that to foil a match-fixing syndicate.

The Ghana has placed officials and players of the two clubs under investigation amid the embarrassing storm confronting the association.

"The General Public and all Stakeholders are to note that until investigations are over, the Ghana Football Association will not approve the issuance of any International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and Introductory letter to any Embassy for visas for any of the persons under investigation." the FA said in a statement.

The suspicion of match-fixing has always been a feature in the Ghana League, especially getting to the end of the season but video evidence of players scoring own goals in the manner that an Inter Allies player did has never been seen before.

In a video that has gone viral, an Inter Allies player is seen scoring two own goals in what appeared to be a deliberate effort and not a blunder in the 7-0 drubbing.

The score line is the heaviest recorded in the 2020/2021 season.
