As a result, RTU gained promotion to the Premier League despite both teams being on 65 points.
The Pride of North last competed in top flight football in 2013. Their relegation that year was a mixed bag of poor performances and financial issues.
They join Bibiani Gold Stars and Accra Lions as the three teams to be promoted to the Premier League next season.
The trio replace Inter Allies, Liberty Professionals and Ebusua Dwarfs who sink to the Division One League.
