The Court Of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) has granted a stay of execution of the ruling by the Appeal Committee of the Ghana Football Association in the matter involving some 21 players of Ashgold and Inter Allies and the FA.

GhanaWeb understands that the grant by CAS comes as a result of the Professional Football Association of Ghana(PFAG)'s appeal through the International Federation of Professional Footballers(FIFPro).

At the moment with the exception of Asante Kotoko's Richmond Lamptey all the players can be involved in action for their clubs until the final judgement is passed by CAS.

Lamptey was found guilty in the scandal during his days at Inter Allies. Asante Kotoko in a statement released on Friday, July 29, 2022, announced that the club have begun processes to appeal his banned at CAS.

As a result, the PFAG exempted Lamptey's name from their appeal list.
