THE GFA Disciplinary Committee (A) yesterday awarded Techiman City three points and three goals in respect of their GN Bank Division One Week-29 match against Berlin FC which was scheduled for September 27.
Techiman City Football Club (the Petitioner) on September 29, 2015 protested against Berlin Football Club (the Respondent) for failing to honour the match at Ameyaw Park, Techiman in contravention of Articles 7(1) and 7(2) of the Division One League Special Regulations and Article 34(1)(f) of the General Regulations of the GFA.
The Prosper Harrison Addo-led Committee found out that the respondent failed to honour the match without just cause. It stated: “It is also the finding of this Committee that the failure of Berlin FC to honour the match was not as a result of a force majeure. Berlin FC is therefore, caught squarely by Article 34(1)(f) of the General Regulations and Article 7(2) of the Division One Special Regulations.”
