Accra, Feb. 19, GNA – The Disciplinary Committee
of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has upheld the position of the GFA
Prosecutor that the four Division One League Clubs who failed to honour their
MTN FA Cup Preliminary Round matches will not be allowed to enter into the
knockout competition for the following two seasons (2020/21 and 2021/22).

The four Clubs, Techiman City FC, Okyeman
Planners FC, Berekum Arsenals FC, and New Edubiase FC have all been fined GHc5,
000 each payable to the GFA within 14 days.

All the four clubs have also been declared
losers of their respective Preliminary round matches, according to a statement
from the GFA.

The argument of the four Clubs that they did
not apply to play in the competition hence the Prosecutor should not punish
them, was dismissed by the Disciplinary Committee.
