RTU Apologizes for Fielding Unregistered Players in GPL Match

Real Tamale United (RTU) FC has issued an unqualified apology to Ghanaian football fans for fielding unregistered players in their recent match against Dreams FC. This unexpected turn of events, which resulted in an 8-1 loss for RTU, has significantly tarnished the reputation of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
In a statement, RTU acknowledged the misconduct and revealed that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has initiated an investigation into the incident. RTU has been given a deadline to present their defense and has already responded to the charges.
“Upon sober reflection of events at Dawu in our outstanding fixture against Dreams on June 12, 2024, the management of RTU solemnly rendered an unqualified apology to the GFA, our supporters, and the general public over the misconduct of the club,” the statement read.
RTU emphasized that the action was not deliberate and expressed their deep regret.
They highlighted the challenging times the club has faced this year, contributing to their likely exit from the Premier League.
“The above action was never deliberate and was never intended to ridicule our beautiful game. The club has gone through some difficult moments this year, a situation that is culminating in our exit from the Premier League,” the statement continued.
“The club, however, courts for mercy and sympathy from the general public and the GFA as we strive to reorganize and create a team that all of us will be proud of. We express our regret again and say that this will never happen again. The club is sorry.”
RTU is scheduled to face Great Olympics in their final game of the season at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, June 16, 2024. The club hopes to move past this incident and rebuild its reputation in the coming seasons.
The inclusion of unregistered players in official matches is a serious breach of regulations and undermines the integrity of the sport.
The GFA’s investigation and subsequent actions will be crucial in maintaining the standards and fairness of the Ghana Premier League.
