The Ashantigold Supporters Union has called for an urgent stakeholder meeting to help salvage the club from sanctions meted out by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) over match-fixing allegations.
Ashantigold SC was demoted to the third tier of Ghana football and was handed a GHC 100,000 fine, after being found guilty of match-fixing.
The “Miners” has officially appealed the decision of the Disciplinary Committee, which is yet to be heard.
According to a statement issued by the supporter’s body, the GFA’s disciplinary action was difficult to believe and had caused pain and anguish among the people of Obuasi. “
This calls for all ‘hands-on deck’ and AngloGold Ashanti to come in strongly to salvage the image of the club.
“We had earlier written to AngloGold Ashanti, Obuasi, requesting a meeting to address collectively the falling fortunes of the team, but as such, no meeting was organised to our surprise.”
It also called for an immediate stakeholder meeting involving chiefs, supporters, and patrons to fashion out a way forward.
“Indeed, Ashantigold should not die given its rich history in Ghana football and the success it has achieved over the years,” the statement said.
