Spain-based Black Stars midfielder Mubarak Wakaso is confident the Ghana Premier League will be powerful this season and has called for unity and support as the competition gets underway on Sunday.

The Alves player expressed his best wishes to all the clubs and players as well as supporters insisting they will enjoy their matches in the 2019/20 campaign.

Ghana is expected to burst back to life this weekend when real domestic football gets underway with the start of the Ghana Premier League after an 18-month hiatus.

Nine matches of the top-flight league competition will be played right across the country on Sunday with 18 clubs in action following months in abeyance.

While urging support for the domestic game Wakaso is resolute in his support for his former club AshantiGold.

"New season. Wish all the teams and the players good luck . Ghana Premier League our great fans are going enjoy it more this season 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #let’s come together and make it real," Wakaso wrote on Sunday.

"AshantiGold for sure."

The start of the Ghana Premier League will be followed next month with the start of the Division One League, the regional leagues, women's league and youth football.

The country's favourite football competition has been revived to start competitive football activities in Ghana following months of confusion and uncertainty.

This follows the election of Kurt Okraku two months ago as the new Ghana FA and has promised to revive the domestic scene with competitions.

After several months of back and forth, the opening round of matches will underway hopefully smoothly on Sunday when the matches start.

The return of football has brought back excitement normally seen around league centers all over the West African country.
