DECISION ON GHANA LEAGUE SEASON WILL BE MADE KNOWN SOON-HENRY ASANTE

The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will make a decision soon about the future of the Ghana League Season which has been halted by the covid 19 pandemic that has plagued the world.

The league season across all divisions has been halted for weeks now leading to many football stakeholders calling for the season to be truncated as it has happened with some African countries.

But in an interview on Diamond FM’s Yelivuhi Saha on Wednesday, Communications Director at the GFA, Henry Asante Twum allayed the fears of all those affected by this trend and hinted that a decision would be made and announced soon by the highest decision making body of the GFA.

Henry Asante Twum said it would be economically prudent to continue with the season as a lot of resources have been spent on it. He noted that sponsors such as broadcast right holders Startimes, and coach and player of the month award sponsors Nasco have all lost considerable amount of resources not to mention the GFA itself to just let go the season like that.

He called for calm and patience as consultations continue up to 30th, June, 2020 for a final determination on the matter.

This would be the third season the Ghana Premier League will be without a champion should the season be cancelled. Aduana Stars remain the last winners as they won the last premier league competition in the 2016/2017 season.

In the past two seasons, the Anas Aremeyaw Anas #Number12 expose into corruption in Ghana football was what led to Ghana football going through a normalization process.

The erstwhile normalization committee conducted an election in October, 2019 and handed over to the Kurt Okraku led administrations who have been in power till date.
