Blatter congratulates Ghana champions AshGold

Fifa President Sepp Blatter has congratulated AshantiGold for winning the 2014/2015 Ghana Premier League.

The Obuasi-based club won the title over the weekend with a game to spare after beating WAFA 1-0 at the Len Clay Stadium.

This happens to be their first premier league title after 19 years.

The Miners will officially be crowned champions on Sunday when they take on Great Olympics in the final round of matches at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Ahead of their coronation, Blatter,  in a letter to the Ghana FA president, described AshGold’s achievement as exceptional.

“A team victory is a wonderful occasion and an opportunity to draw satisfaction from a job well done. Please pass on my own personal congratulations, along with those of the whole football family to Ashantigold SC on their exceptional performance.

“I know that behind this success are the belief and effort of everyone involved. This is a true team victory, and all of you deserve to share in the accolades: the players and coach of course, but also the technical and medical staff and, not least, the loyal fans.

“Football is proving more than ever that it can transcend traditional boundaries to become a real driver of development. It enables players at all levels to develop their individual skills, tactical understanding and personal dynamism, all the while strengthening team spirit,” he added.

AshGold will represent Ghana in the Caf Champions League next season.
