Phar Rangers withdraw from Ghana football with immediate effect
Division One League side, Phar Rangers have withdrawn from all organised competitions of the Ghana FA with immediate effect.
The club in a release on Monday, June 7, announced its decision to halt its participation in the Nations Division One League Zone 3 and the FA Cup.
The statement read: “The management and Directors of Phar Rangers have resolved to withdraw from all GFA competitions including Division One Zone 3 League and the FA Cup with immediate effect”.
“Consider the club defunct henceforth.”
According to a report, the club’s decision is a result of an alleged deliberate attempt by the Ghana FA to frustrate the club.
The Mampong-based club was founded in 2015 and owned by Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Phar Rangers currently sit 14th on the Division One Zone 3 league table with 21 points and recently advanced to the Round of 32 of the MTN FA Cup after defeating Dreams FC on penalties after the match ended in a 2-2 draw.
The GFA has confirmed receiving the letter by the club and says it will accordingly activate the appropriate provisions in the GFA Rules & Regulations relating to the matter.
