The Wonder Club's ambition to play in the top-flight this season was dealt a big blow on Thursday after a court ruled in favour of the GFA

Great Olympics have seen their injunction on the start of the Ghana Premier League thrown out by Justice Anthony Yeboah at the Human Right court in Accra on Thursday.

The Wonder Club petitioned the court a fortnight ago to halt the start of the 2017-18 season, after their protests against Elmina Sharks and Bechem United went unsuccessful.

A ruling in favour of the relegated club could have allowed them participate in the top-flight.

However, the judge insisted that the court lacks the jurisdiction to settle the matter between the club and Ghana FA since it is an internal issue meant to be handled by the association's judicial body.

Justice Yeboah further revealed that Olympics can continue to pursue their case at the Appeals Court and even the Supreme Court if necessary.

The decision means that Ghana FA can go ahead with plans to begin the new season.

Goal 's sources have revealed that a supporter of Olympics called Niibi Osekan has successfully served Ghana FA another injunction which could halt all arrangements.
