The legal battle between Ghana Football Association and Great Olympics over an alleged unfair treatment has been adjourned to February 21 by Accra High Court, AshesGyamera can confirm.

Olympics believe they have been treated unfairly because Bechem United and Elmina Sharks fielded unqualified players in one of their games last season and if found guilty, three points will be deducted from each of their accumulated points and therefore save them.

However, the disciplinary committee of the GFA threw out their cases resulting into the unfortunate incidents.

The case was heard on Tuesday morning after Olympics placed an injunction on all activities related to the Premier League last week and as a result, forced the football association and Premier League Board to cancel the launch of the new season and the annual general congress respectively.

According to our sources the two parties involved in the legal battle will have to settle the case outside the court room or else, it will be adjourned again in the next hearing before a final decision is declared by the judge.

The 2017-18 Ghana Premier League was expected to kickoff on February 11 but it will likely start late in March following the current legal tussle.
