AshantiGold bankroller summoned over match-fixing

Bankroller of AshantiGold, Dr Kwaku Frimpong has been summoned by the Compliance and Integrity Unit of the Ghana Football Association following an allegation of match-fixing against his own players.

The club President, following the Miners’ 6-1 obliteration by WAFA in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League on March 1, claimed in a radio interview that there were traces of betting in the match-day 12 fixture at Sogakope.

Dr Frimpong was quoted as saying on Kumasi-based Ashh FM: “I have told the BNI to investigate it. I sense elements of betting in the game. Even at the stadium, someone hinted it. My midfielders were walking throughout the game.”

These allegations finally received the attention of the recently established GFA Compliance and Integrity Unit which has asked the AshantiGold chief to clarify his statement.

A statement on the GFA website Friday reads:

“The Compliance and Integrity Unit of the Ghana Football Association has written to AshantiGold SC President Dr. Kwaku Frimpong seeking clarification about a statement he purportedly made after their match-day 12 Ghana Premier League fixture against WAFA at Sogakope on 1st March, 2020.

Dr. Frimpong is said to have alleged that the game was manipulated. He further stated in an interview on Kumasi-based Ashh FM that he sensed elements of betting in the game.

Dr. Frimpong is being asked to confirm making the statement and if true assist the GFA with details of evidence available to him.

The Code of Ethics 2019 of the Ghana Football Association requires participants of Ghana football including club executives (Dr. Kwaku Frimpong) to corporate with the Unit to investigate incidents in match manipulation.

It must also be noted that the Code of Ethics and the Disciplinary Code prohibits the making of false allegations without proof.”
