Published on: 01 July 2020

King Faisal Babes director Nana Amankwah has expressed his excitement following the cancellation of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.

The Ghana FA Executive Council took a decision to terminate the 2019/20 football season following a marathon meeting on Tuesday.

The Ghana top-flight has been halted since 15 March 2020 due to the widespread of the coronavirus pandemic.

King Faisal were languishing at the bottom on the league standings with only six points after 14 rounds of matches played.

The decision means the Kumasi based side will compete in the 2020/2021 league campaign as there were no winners, no relegations and no promotions.

"It’s good news for football fans and the players, not only King Faisal FC. We thank God, it will prevent us from getting the virus. We all wanted the best for our game," he told OTEC FM.

Amankwah assured that the club will not face the challenges they encountered in the cancelled season.

"What happened to us which with the help of COVID-19 the league has been canceled will never repeat again so we will prepare well before the next season start."

"Clubs should advise themselves and make sure they don’t go through what happened to us (King Faisal)," he concluded.
