Bibiani Gold Stars gained promotion to the Premier League after piping Skyy FC and Samartex 1996 to the single qualification slot in Zone Two following a stellar campaign.
Skyy FC who came second will head into the new season with their tails up having won the maiden Division One League Super Cup in October. The Daboase based side beat Tema Youth in the final to win their first domestic silverware in history.

Basake Holy Stars (Western), Soccer Intellectuals (Central), and Future Stars (Ashanti) have gained promotion to play in the second-tier League after winning their Regional Division Two Leagues.
