Great Olympics place injunction on Ghana Premier League kickoff

The Wonder Club have placed an injunction on the 2017-18 top-flight until all outstanding cases are heard

Great Olympics have officially placed an injunction on the start of 2017-18 Ghana Premier League season, scheduled to kick off on January 13, Goal can confirm.

The Accra-based club delivered an injunction letter to the Ghana Football Association Secretary General on Monday in protest against the decision of the GFA’s Disciplinary committee which threw out Great Olympics’ complaints against Bechem United and Elmina Sharks.

"I was at GFA secretariat this afternoon to hand over the injunction letter and prevent them from holding anything related to the start of the new season until all cases are cleared," Great Olympics CEO, Commodore Oloboi told Goal.

"The general secretary took the letter on the association's behalf. We have two cases against Bechem United and Elmina Sharks and that can determine our faith in the Premier League. As I'm talking to you right now, we've not been relegated and so there can't be plans about the new season without us.

"They can't hold the launch of the new season or announce the clubs to participate without addressing our case. Also, the association can't hold its congress and discuss the Premier League or club's that have been promoted or relegated until the case is attended and all parties satisfied," he added.

Olympics finished last season 15th on a 16-club log, with 36 points, four points below safety but a ruling in their favour will save them from the drop.

Goal understands that the ruling in the case involving Techiman City and Eleven Wonders at Court of Arbitration for Sports will be out this week and that will also determine who plays in the league between the two city rivals.
