The Ghana Football Association has slapped a five-year ban on second-tier side Phar Rangers for withdrawing from the league without a just cause.
The Disciplinary Committee has found the club guilty of the charges and will now cease to exist for the next five years.
“That Phar Rangers FC is hereby suspended from all competitions of the Ghana Football Association for a period of Five (5) years effective this 2020/2021 football season in accordance with Article 13(3) of the Division One League
Regulations,” the DC ruling read on Wednesday
” That accordingly, Phar Rangers FC shall only be allowed to join the Regional Football Association league upon the return after five season at the lowest league of the region.”
Phar Rangers were charged for misconduct by the Ghana FA after it withdrew from all competitions from the association, forcing the Ghana FA to activate regulations on the club’s withdrawal with immediate effect.
However, the club fell short of providing a just cause for its decision to withdraw from the country’s second-tier league.
