Defending champions Asante Kotoko are facing eviction from the Ghana Premier League for failing to submit any audited accounts to the Ghana FA.
According to a Graphic Sports publication, Kotoko flouted Article 8 clause 2 of the Ghana Football Association rules by not meeting the deadline.
It reads: “All premier league clubs shall submit audited accounts and documents on incorporation of clubs as companies either limited by shares or guarantees to the Association. The audited accounts for the year preceding the just ended league season shall be submitted before the commencement of the new league season.”
According to the FA rules, every premiership club is to submit its audited accounts with the FA before the commencement of each season.
Failure of which is punishable by deduction of points from the accumulated points of matches played by the offending club.
But the Ghana FA can only take action if a third party protests.
