Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, Ghana football leagues (Premier League, Division One and Women’s league) came to a standstill in mid March due to the ban on social gathering by the government to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
The unforeseen circumstance since then has left the future of the country’s football leagues up in the air.
But after a long wait and several engagements with the stakeholders of the game and health officials, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has taken a decision to cancel the 2019/2020 football season following.
The decision was made after an Executive Council meeting on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at the GFA Secretariat in Accra.
The Executive Council also decided that per the relevant provisions of the CAF inter-club football Regulations, Asante Kotoko and Ashanti Gold will represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League and the Confederations Cup respectively.
The Executive Council will meet on Thursday, July 9, 2020 to discuss all issues relating to the next football season and Congress.
The GFA will continue its engagement with all sponsors and all stakeholders following the cancellation of the season.
