This latest development comes days after the bankroller of the newly-promoted side, Alhaji Grusah had stated that he is ready to let go of the club.

''I'm ready to release King Faisal outright to any investor but my only plea to any potential buyer will be that he shouldn't rename the club just in honouring me, he said in an interview.

''I'm appealing to everyone who's interested. I want to be part of the club as far as I'm alive.''

According to local reports, Sammy Kuffour an ex-player of the club has come to the rescue of the newly-promoted side ahead of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier season.

At the Extra-Ordinary Congress held last week at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, 64 of the 120 delegates approved of the decision for Great Olympics and King Faisal to partake in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

The decision means the new league season will have 18 teams instead of the standard 16 which has been the norm for many years.

However, at the end of that 2019/20 campaign, 5 teams would be relegated whereby 3 teams would be promoted from Division One to have the regular of 16 teams for the 2020/2021 campaign.
