Oly Court Case Thrown Out; League Set To Start

A suit brought before an Accra High Court by relegated Ghana Premier League side Great Olympics has been dismissed.

The Accra-based side had prayed the court to overturn a Ghana Football Associaton (GFA) Disciplinary Committee decision relegating them instead of Bechem United.

Great Olympics served the Premier League Board the writ on Monday, February, forcing a cancellation of the launch of the 2017/2018 league same day.

The case was first heard on Tuesday, February 13 but was adjourned to Wednesday, February 21 after the plaintiff demanded more time to study the response of the defense counsel.

In Court on Wednesday, Justice Anthony Yeboah dismissed the suit.

The Football Association is expected to meet to announce a new date for the start of the League, which was originally slated for February 11.
