Real Tamale United have qualified to the 2012-13 Ghana Premier League season after beating Unity FC 4-1 on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The Tamale-based side won their third-straight match in the Division One League play-offs to gain promotion for next season's premiership with nine points.
Both sides had won two straight matches apiece ahead of their meeting but it was Unity F.C, which led the standings with a better goal advantage and needed only a draw to pick the sole qualifying slot.
The Pride of the North will now have to prepare for the start of the 2012-13 Glo Premier League which commences October 7.
In the other game, Bofoakwa Tano were 1-0 winners over Bazooka F.C at the Bekwai Park but that result made no difference to the qualification
A thrilling finish to the competition in Zone III saw Tema-based Amidaus Professionals secure their debut promotion to the elite division after edging past King Solomon and Instanbul to the qualifying ticket.
Level on four points but adrift on goal difference to Instanbul prior to kick off, Amidaus managed a 1-0 win against King Solomon in Gyandu to finish the competition with 7 points, three more than Instanbul.
Instanbul's chances were ended following a 1-0 in Cape Coast to bottom side, Danbort in Zone III.
