LIST: 19 AshantiGold players and officials suffer GPL match-fixing sanctions

Nineteen (19) players and officials of AshantiGold have been handed various sanctions after being found culpable in the match-fixing scandal that rocked Ghana football some ten months ago.

The Miners – per a GFA Disciplinary Committee veridct on Monday – have been found guilty of match manipulation when they hosted and beat Inter Allies 7-0 in their final fixture in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League on July 17, 2021.
