Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.

The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League will be played in a different format when the season begins on October 31.

Football activity in Ghana was halted in mid-March due to the coronavirus crisis.

The country’s top-flight was consequently annulled following a marathon meeting by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on June 30.

According to media reports, the campaign will commence on October 31 but with a different format as the 18 teams will be divided into two Zones, i.e., Northern Zone and Southern Zone.

This new calendar is expected to help synchronise the local league with the European calendar.
