An Accra High Court for the second time have dismissed Great Olympics quest to place an injunction on the Ghana Premier League.
A hearing on Thursday saw the charge by Great Olympics being quashed as Court orders the two sides (GFA and Great Olympics) to settle the issue internally.
Olympics served the Ghana Football Association with a notice from court to halt the commencement of the top-flight after their initial request had been thrown out.
The hearing which was expected to take place last week had to be postponed after Olympics claimed their legal representative was unwell hence failing to appear in court, an action which saw them being fined by the court.
Upon a verdict on Thursday, the Teshie-based Club for the second time had their request thrown out by the court.
The latest decision paves way for the commencement of the Ghana Premier League this weekend.
Until Olympics serve the Football Association with another court injunction, the 2017/18 season will kick start as planned.
Great Olympics had reportedly suggested an 18-Club League in order to have them participate next season, a request which was rejected by the Nation’s Football governing body.
The League have been in limbo for the past two months due to the legal tussle between Olympics and the Football Association.
Clubs have been engaging themselves in friendly matches in order to keep players active before the start of the League.
The delay in the League looked to have affected Kotoko’s campaign in Africa after they were knocked out from the CAF Confederations Cup due to lack of football activities.
The Ghana Football Association meanwhile is expected to communicate the latest decision to the public and also confirm the start of the Ghana Premier League.
