Kpando Heart of Lions have won the 2022/2023 Division One League Zone 3, effectively securing their promotion to the next season of the Betpawa Premier League.
The club was relegated in the 2014/2015 season and will now make their return to the elite league after an eight-year absence.
Their promotion to the top flight was confirmed following the defeats of Vision FC and Koforidua Semper Fi FC in Division One League Week 25.
Vision FC lost 0-2 to Attram De Visser while Semper Fi FC fell 0-2 to Na God FC.
Hearts of Lions have won 18, drawn two, and lost four out of their 24 league matches, topping the table with 56 points.
As a result, the Kpando-based club now have a 16-point advantage over the chasing pack who still have five league games left to play.
In a social media post, the club said:
