Mighty Jets threaten legal action against Ghana FA over FA Cup snub


Second tier club Mighty Jets are ready to take on the Ghana FA for refusing to re-admit them into the FA Cup competition after AshantiGold were punished for not showing up for their match against Asante Kotoko.

The Miners have been declared losers for not showing up for the quarter final match against the Premier League champions on April 13.

AshGold were also slapped with a GH¢1,000 (almost $500) as part of the punishment dished out by the Ghana FA’s Disciplinary Committee.

But Mighty Jets claim they were supposed to replace the punished AshantiGold per the rules of the FA Cup competition and will be taking the Ghana FA on in an impending legal tussle.

“I wrote to the Ghana FA to ensure the rules of the FA Cup tournament are enforced by replacing AshantiGold with Mighty Jets,” Mighty Jets General Manager James Oyedeji told Metro FM.

“I have not received any response to date over that letter and yet still the Ghana FA has come up with such a ruling.

“The rules of the FA Cup are clearly spelt out that a team that fails to show up for a game will be replaced by the losing team in the preceding round.

“Mighty Jets will therefore write again to the Ghana FA to protest this ruling and seek to enforce the regulations of the FA Cup competition.

“We have lawyers lined up to start litigating the moment advertisements are placed for the semi final match without our case being heard.”
