GHPL Launch called off due to Olympics injunction

Monday 5th February , 2018 7:26 pm

The proposed launch of the 2017/2018 Ghana Premier League season has been called off after a court injunction from Accra Great Olympics was served the GFA, hours to the program.

The event was to commemorate the upcoming season and would have seen a new logo unveiled for the league.

However, patrons and invited stakeholders who had waited for more than an hour were left disappointed after PLB spokesperson, Tamimu Issah, emerged to announce that the program has been called off pending further communication.




Earlier on Monday, Great Olympics served the GFA with an injunction to stop the commencement of the Ghana Premier League.

Olympics say that the FA needs to resolve the matter of Bechem United’s use of an unqualified player in their league clash with Hearts last season.

It seems the resolution of the case holds the key to the start of the new Ghana Premier League season.
