Accra Great Olympics’ injunction case preventing the Ghana Football Association from going ahead with the start of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League has been thrown out by the court.
On Wednesday morning an Accra High Court, presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah ruled Olympic’s case as lacking merit.
Olympics, after suffering relegation from the top flight last season, sought to stop the start of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League and related activities until some boardroom cases they believed could help them stay afloat were resolved.
An injunction was served on February 5 with hearing originally set for February 13 but it had to be adjourned after the plaintiff requested for time to study the Ghana FA’s response to their case.
That suit forced the postponement of the launch of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League, the 24th Ordinary Congress and other activities relating to the new season.
The latest development frees the Ghana FA and Premier League Board to go ahead with the launch of the new season and Congress.
The Ghana FA is expected to announce a new Congress date and that of the new league season anytime soon.
