The concluded 2021/22 is so far null and void while the start to the new season 2022/23 FKF Premier League is in limbo, unless the government-appointed FKF Transition Committee reinstates all the FKF Judicial Bodies and Stand-in Committees.
The Sports Disputes Tribunal has this afternoon ruled in favor of a petition (SDTSC NO: E 021 OF 2022) filed on May 19, 2022, challenging the FKF Transition Committee for unconstitutionally ignoring already existing FKF Judicial and Standing Bodies, and instead appointing their own in the tail end of the season to adjudicate on pile up of match disputes that season, thus infringing on the right to fair administrative action.
The World Cup final takes place on December 18 and Premier League action will resume eight days later on Boxing Day, Monday, December 26. The final round of Premier League matches, to be played on May 28, 2023, will kick off simultaneously as is customary.
The Tribunal restated that their mandate was to ensure that they ran the affairs of the FKF as per its constitution, but they were found to have acted unconstitutionally running the league without Judicial bodies and it, therefore, the 2021/22 league season results are a nullity, As per the above ruling, there was no properly and legally organized league competition, a valid winner or loser, and as such no club stands either relegated or promoted.
