The Ghana football season is facing a second cancellation for the second year running amid the coronavirus pandemic wrecking havoc across the world.

The 2019/20 season is facing an imminent termination as the world struggle to find a vaccine to cure the deadly virus.

The Ghana Premier League has been suspended indefinitely amid the global pandemic and with no end in sight, it appears this season could be well  over.

The Ghana FA will race against time to finish the calendar on time if the situation is not resolved latest by April.

The Premier League and lower tier leagues have been put on ice as the shutdown begins to bite.

If the league is cancelled, it will be the second time running that the season failed to complete.

The 2018/2019 league season was terminated over a a documentary by controversial journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which revealed alleged widespread corruption in the game.

The Anas exposé brought football on its knees, leaving Congress- the highest decision-making body of the FA to officially confirm its cancellation.

Ghana football has suffered in the past two seasons and appears another cancellation is on the horizon.
