Recent HistoryEdit

It gained promotion to the 2016 Ghanaian Premier League with Ebusua Dwarfs and Dreams F.C. which was helped with two free 3-0 wins. Berlin F.C. failed to attend a match and Bolga All Stars lost their case against Techiman City who inveighed against them for fielding four unqualified players.[5]

Techiman City were demoted to the Ghana Division One after losing 4-0 to Berekum Chelsea F.C. in the final day.[6][7] This was despite winning a free game as New Edubiase United FC fielded an unqualified player.[8] An immense proportion of 10, 000 Ghanaian cedis was given to the club after sponsors Sasso Insectiside Spray promised them that sum if they won Accra Hearts of Oak. They managed a draw but the sponsor gave Techiman City that amount anyway.[9]

Securing their sponsorship deal with Bio-Global Investments (manufacturers and distributors of Rox Energy Drink) in 2016, it will be their official drink sponsor until summer 2017.[10]Nasona Oil was supposed to have been Techiman City's sponsor but Nasona Oil denied such reports, saying that 'they have not signed a deal with Techiman city'. As a result, Techiman City FC were demoted to Division Two.[11]

Placed an injunction on the Ghana Football Association in February 2016 for being put into the Ghana Division Two as they were thought to have fixed a game.[12] They withdrew their request on the Ghana Football Association a year later.[13]
