Ghana's No. 1

Judgment DAY on Ghana Football looms as EXCO meets today to decide season

Published on: 30 June 2020

Ghanaian football clubs will learn today whether the 2019-20 season will be rendered null and void or not amid growing uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic. 

Local clubs are sitting on the edge as they awaits the final decision from the powerful Ghana FA Executive Council at Tuesday's crunch meeting in Accra.

The decision from the 12-member committee will have fa reaching implication on domestic football as abandoning the season entirely would mean no promotion, no relegation and no champions.

The Ghana Football Association will put to rest the speculation surrounding the future of the season by taking a DEFINITE decision today.

With the government reluctant to ease restrictions for the resumption of contacts sport, the decision from the Executive Council, will make for interesting reading.

The season has been thrown into turmoil since football was suspended back in March this year amid uncertain signals from government - which is reportedly unwilling to risk players and officials back onto the pitch.

Ghana lifted a partial lock-down in April but has been reluctant to allow football to return despite easing restrictions for non-contacts sport.

Some Premier and Division One League teams were hoping for a return of the game shortly after the easing of restrictions, targeting a mid-August resumption of their seasons.

But that may remain a pipe dream with the Executive Council which has been under enormous pressure finally CANCELLING  the season.

A majority of clubs in the bottom half of the Premier and Division One Leagues want the season scrapped amid the coronavirus shutdown while a chunk of administrators are pushing for the current campaign to be axed. 

While TV right holders StarTimesand FA Cup sponsors MTN are threatening to withdraw their sponsorship if the season is annulled, clubs will simply not budge.
