Tema Youth Win Case against GFA

Tema Youth Win Case against GFA

- in Sports

Relegated premier league side, Tema Youth FC, based in Tema, has won their case against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) over protest against promoted second-tier side, Dreams FC.

According to the ruling by the Swiss-based body, the case will be heard again with fresh facts from Tema Youth who are seeking for the relegation of Dreams FC from the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

The Tema-based club took its case to the CAS early this year, contesting the status of Dreams FC claiming that Dreams fielded an unqualified player in a game that saw Dreams progress to the GPL.

Owner of Tema Youth FC, Wilfred Osei Palmer, went to the CAS after the judicial bodies of the GFA declared them losers in their protest against Dreams FC for fielding an ineligible player in their Division One League.

The disciplinary committee of the GFA found no evidence in the applicant's allegation of fraud and subsequently dismissed the case which eventually led to a delayed start of this season's GPL.

However, Dreams FC remains to be in the premier league despite the ruling of the CAS.
