Match-fixing allegations: GFA to finally bite by the end of the season

Published on: 11 May 2022

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to make use of its laws to take action against match-fixing in the country.

According to GFA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, results will show for Ghanaians to see that steps are being taken by his outfit to clamp down on match-fixing by the end of the season.

“At the end of the season, Ghanaians will see a result (match-fixing), and let nobody lie that Ghana doesn't have laws to deal with match manipulators. We won't allow people to destroy our game, a day of reckoning is coming,” the Ghana FA General Secretary told Angel TV in an interview.

Match-fixing and betting allegations have come up in the last few weeks of the Ghana Premier League season.

Some referees, players, and club officials are reportedly implicated in some of the scandals but no actual evidence provided.

It has now come to light that the GFA is on top of the issues and set to bite for offenders to feel the full force of the law.
