The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is set to hear the  Ghana FA presidential election disqualification appeal case after plaintiff Wilfred Kwaku Osei paid 22,000 Swiss Francs on behalf of the local football governing body.

Joy Sports has reported that the payment was made on Tuesday and the sports tribunal will now go ahead to set a date for the case.

Osei had no option but to foot the bill after the Ghana FA failed to pay their part of the  cost.

The case would have been thrown out if he had not paid as communicated by Finance Director of CAS, Miguel Abelairs.

If CAS sets a date for the hearing, Osei would be represented by Thaddeus Sory and judge on the three-man Arbitration panel, John Didulica - a former member of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber.

The GFA would be represented by Naa Odofoley Nortey at a fee of US$ 35,000.

The judge of the FA on the three-judge CAS panel is, Hendrik Willem Kesler, famous for his role in upholding the ban of Turkish star Hakan Çalhanoğlu in 2016.
