Tarkwa-based Medeama SC have replaced WAFA SC in the upcoming Ghalca G-8 competition.
The Academy side pulled out of the January 6-21 tournament last week citing fatigue on their players.
The Ghana League Clubs Association (Ghalca), organizers of the off-season competition subsequently invited Medeama who finished seventh in the Ghana Premier League last season as replacement.
And the Yellow and Mauve side have accepted the request with a confirmation tweet saying:
”We would like to inform our fans that we will participate in the G8 tournament. The club has decided to honour the invitation from Ghalca,” read Medeama’s official twitter handle.
Medeama will now occupy WAFA’s place in Group B of the G-8 Tournament. They will face Ebusua Dwarfs in their first match before completing the group phase with games against Hearts of Oak and Karela United.
