TECHIMAN City is the third team to join Ghana’s elite football league after a 2-0 win over Unity FC last Wednesday in Goaso, thanks to goals from Emmanuel Baah and Hussein Yusif in the 42nd and 45th minute respectively.

Despite their recent setbacks with bribery allegations levelled against them and Wa African United, Techiman City gathered themselves together to amass 60 points ahead of second-placed Real Tamale United(RTU) and Berekum Arsenals.

City placed a Stay-off execution on the ruling of GFA’s Disciplinary Committee verdict after being demoted to the third-tier league and depending on the outcome of the Appeals Committee sitting.

The Techiman-based club, formally known as BA Stars will replace relegated BA United as the next Brong Ahafo club to taste premiership next season.

They will join Bechem United, Aduana Stars and Berekum Chelsea for the 2015-16 campaign.

Meanwhile, clubs in the First Capital Premier League seeking to sign on new players ahead of next season will have the chance to tie them down from yesterday as the Ghana Football Association has announced that the first window of the Fifa ITMS has opened today.

Clubs who are willing to register professional players from other countries will be able to do so from yesterday till the system closes December 23.

All training compensation and solidarity contribution claims must be submitted and managed through the International Transfer Matching System (ITMS) via the new claims functionality.

Clubs are to note that they will no longer be able to submit a paper claim regarding training compensation and solidarity contribution by fax to the Fifa Players’ Status and Governance Department from 1 October 2015.

In another development, Accra Hearts of Oak will start pre-season training on October 15 for the 2015/2016 season.

The Phobians have taken a one-month break after a tumultuous campaign last term which saw them flirt with relegation.

Hearts are yet to appoint a substantive coach after goalkeepers’ trainer Edward Ansah steered them to safety following the exit of Herbert Addo.

The capital club have announced they will sign five quality players to make them title contenders and have recruited Latif Salifu.
