Palmer dragged the GFA to CAS following his what he describes as his “unfair” disqualification from the 2019 GFA Presidential elections.

The Tema Youth owner was disqualified by the now-defunct Normalisation Committee / Elections Committee from contesting the elections.

He was disqualified on two grounds: One was his failure to pay the 10% mandatory fee to the GFA following the transfer of his player Joseph Paintsil to Belgian side KRC Genk.

If the arbitration award favour Palmer, and all his relieves are granted, the results of the last FA presidential election will be declared null and void for a fresh elections to be held.

Otherwise, Kurt Okraku will continue to serve his four-year term as GFA President.
