Keta Business College (KETABUSCO) has been banned from competing in the Sprite Ball Championship indefinitely.

This is a punishment to the school for fielding unqualified players at the recently held 2020 Sprite Ball Championship which run from January 3-4 at the El-Wak Stadium in Ghana’s capital Accra.

KETABUSCO won the title for the first time ever by beating Mfantsipim School 48-40 in the Boys Division Final; the win was KETABUSCO’s second over Mfantsipim in the competition following a 32-24 win in the opening game.

Following the school’s triumph, several allegations including fielding unqualified players were levelled at the school by some schools that participated in this year’s edition.

Following investigations by the Ghana Education Service (GES), KETABUSCO was found to have fielded five unqualified players in the High School basketball competition regarded as Ghana’s biggest.

The decision comes after GES Deputy Director-General Anthony Boateng, National Physical Education Coordinator Emmanuel Dormenyah, Deputy Physical Education Coordinator Cynthia Wise and Rite Sports CEO Yaw Sakyi Afari met with an entourage from KETABUSCO headlined by Headmaster Seake-Kwawu.

GES will release a statement stating further punishment to the Headmaster and Physical Education tutors in the coming days.
