Ghana's No. 1

Alhaji Jawula - We want the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season to continue to avoid legal tussles

Published on: 10 June 2020

Ghana Premier League Management Committee Chairman, Alhaji MND Jawula has disclosed that clubs are willing to continue the suspended 2019/20 season to avoid legal tussles.

The top-flight league and other football competitions remain suspended in Ghana due to the surge in the novel coronavirus cases.

The ban on public gatherings has been extended for further two months putting a dent on all hopes of football resumption in the country.

There are divided opinions on the fate of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League campaign with a section suggesting the season be continued and others also suggesting termination.

The former Ghana Football Association chief said the 2019/2020 season will continue based on the outcome of the engagement between the Ghana FA and Confederation of African Football (CAF) as well the government of Ghana for financial support.

"We want to continue the league to avoid legal tussles but that will be contingent on what comes out from our engagement with government and CAF for financial assistance," he told Kumasi based Opemsuo FM.

The Ghana Premier League and all other leagues were halted on 15 March 2020.
