Ashgold Disagrees with GFA’s Decison To Suspend Club from All Football Related Activities | Football/Soccer


Ashantigold Sporting Club presents its compliments.

We take notice of your publication on the GFA website dated 30th September, 2022, suspending the club from all football related activities.

In compliance with article 17(2) of the GFA statutes, the Association subsequently conducted a vote on the suspension of the club during the 29th Ordinary congress in Kumasi.

Despite not having the required number of eligible delegates voting in support of the suspension, the General Secretary of the Association went ahead to confirm the suspension of the club, in direct contradiction to Article 17 (2) of the GFA statutes, 2019, as quoted “suspension of a Member by the Congress requires more than 50 percent of the delegates representing the Members present and eligible to vote and three quarters voting for the suspension”

Additionally, there is a documentary proof that there was an error in the counting process and that the indicated number of delegates counted to have voted in favor of the suspension (64) does not reflect the actual number of congressmen who voted in support. For clarity purposes, our internal review identified only 25 delegates voted in favor of the suspension.

Subsequently, we have monitored all official platforms of the Association and our official email and have not received or identified any publication on the subject for clarity purposes.

We therefore write to express our disagreement with the suspension as it is in contradiction with the demands of Article 17 (2) of the Ghana Football Association statutes, 2019.

We subsequently request for this error to be rectified for the suspension to be lifted automatically, in compliance with Article 17 (2) of the GFA Statutes 2019, as quoted “A suspension of a Member by the Executive Council shall be confirmed at the next Congress. If it is not confirmed, the suspension shall be automatically lifted”.

We count on your cooperation.

Best regards.



AshantiGold SC have been suspended officially from the Ghana Football Association following a congress decision.

The motion was moved by the Administrative Manager of Dreams FC, Ameenu Shardow, for the Obuasi-based club to be suspended during the 29th congress session of the Ghana FA at KNUST Great Hall.

After a vote by headcount was conducted, 67 voted in favour of suspension while 17 voted against the motion.

This officially and effectively seals AshantiGold’s suspension by the Ghana FA congress due to choosing to deal with suspended officials Kwaku Frimpong and Emmanuel Frimpong.

The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has unanimously decided to suspend AshantiGold last year under Article 17(1) of the GFA Statutes, which has been upheld by congress.

This decision was taken due to the club’s dealing with banned officials Kwaku Frimpong and Emmanuel Frimpong, which constitutes a serious violation of both GFA Statutes and the FIFA Statutes.

Kwaku Frimpong and Emmanuel Frimpong were banned by the GFA Disciplinary Committee for 10 years and 8 years, respectively, for engaging in match manipulations.

Also the club suffered a demotion from the Ghanaian top division to the third-tier for match manipulations.

This means that AshantiGold cannot be involved in activities of the Ghana FA, including the participation of all competitions amongst others.
