Ghana's No. 1

The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League fixtures have been released by the Ghana Football Association.

The campaign which is scheduled to kick-start on Friday, November 13, 2020, will run through up until the weekend of July 16-18, 2021.

There will be some mouthwatering clashes that advocates of the local league should be looking ahead to, with Aduana Stars and Hearts of Oak setting the pace for the crunch games.

Here are some of the bigger games you should really try to watch over the course of the Premier League campaign.

Aduana Stars v Hearts of Oak

These two clubs have served Ghanaians with scintillating encounters in the past and them meeting in the season opener will set the league ablaze.

There is no animosity between the two sides as Hearts of Oak, who are the oldest club in the competition, consider their opponents to be sisters due to the solid relationship between the club and Aduana Stars patron, Nana Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang-Badu II.

However, matches between the two teams have always been one of the most atmospheric in the top-flight.

The game is scheduled to come off on Sunday, November 15, at the Agyeman Badu Stadium in Dormaa.

Hearts of Oak v AshantiGold SC

Matches between Hearts of Oak and AshantiGold SC have been feisty and usually sees a lot of cards being distributed and controversial officiating.

The Phobians will have no respite after the crunch showdown against Aduana in Dormaa as they have to put themselves together for an equally rush of blood encounter against the Miners on Matchday 2 in Accra.

Budding CEO of AshantiGold, Emmanuel Frimpong, stated some months ago that his outfit are the second biggest club in the country after Asante Kotoko.

His claim left many Hearts of Oak perplexed as they believe they are the mighty football club in the nation.

Berekum Chelsea v Aduana Stars

Berekum Chelsea will be gunning to repeat the form they demonstrated last season when they defeated all the top sides in the opening five games.

The Blues impressive run was halted by Aduana Stars at the Golden City Park.

The two teams will meet again on Matchday 6, but expect another eye-catching display from Chelsea.

Aduana will always be tough customers for any team in the league hence this particular game will not be short of entertainment.

Asante Kotoko v Great Olympics

Asante Kotoko have been Ghana Premier League title contenders for the past half decade, and their clashes with Great Olympics were great to watch.

When two of the traditional teams in the league play each other, it's always a tough one for both sides.

The two clubs will meet on Matchday 3 at a yet-to-be-named venue as the Porcupine Warriors are waiting for their request to use the Accra Sports Stadium as their home venue for the 2020/21 season is yet to be approved.

Ebusua Dwarfs v Medeama SC

The Western regional derby has never disappointed and nothing shows it will this forthcoming season.

Similarly to Aduana Stars, Medeama SC have made significant strides in the Premier League, meaning that their matches against any opposition has become aperitive.

The Yellow and Mauves have now become a lot more important in the league but playing as guests against Dwarfs will not come cheap as bragging rights will equally be like a trophy.

The showdown, which is slated to come off on Saturday, December 12, is a Week 5 fixture.

WAFA v Asante Kotoko

The Academy Boys who have carved a niche for themselves as 'Giant Slayers' will for sure not shudder at the clout of their opponents, Asante Kotoko.

WAFA for the past seasons have been putting teams to the sword, and not just teams but mighty clubs such as Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.

After losing 2-0 during the 2017 campaign, Asante Kotoko have managed to hold the Sogakofe lads to consecutive draws at their backyard for the past two meetings.

The Porcupine Warriors will aim to show their superiority over their opponents when the two sides meet on Matchday 9, but trust the twinkle twinkle stars to pull a surprise on the visitors.

Asante Kotoko v Aduana Stars

Aduana Stars have really riled Asante Kotoko since joining the Premier League in the 2009/10 season.

The extra passion for these two sides are the regional conflict between the Ashantis and Bono people. This has made clashes between the two teams bloodier.

These two teams just don't like each other and it usually shows.

Last season, the Fire Boys continued their home dominance over the Asante Kotoko with a slim victory but the Porcupine Warriors did not get a chance to avenge that defeat as the league was truncated due to the coronavirus crisis.

This Week 10 fixture will be a perfect opportunity for Maxwell Konadu and his charges to pay back their bitterest rivals.

AshantiGold SC v Asante Kotoko

Asante Kotoko feature again, and this time it's with Ashanti regional rivals AshantiGold SC.

Perhaps the most hotly contested of all the Ashanti derbies is the one between AshantiGold and Asante Kotoko.

The Miners recent rise in form over the past few seasons have caused this fixture to take on extra meaning, and the game is usually packed with controversies.

Last season, AshantiGold SC pipped their opponents 1-0 in Obuasi before holding them to a goalless draw in Kumasi.

Both games did not end without controversies and hopefully the tradition will keep up when they meet again on Matchday 11.

Hearts of Oak v Great Olympics

Another cliffhanger on Matchday 11 as Hearts of Oak play as hosts against city rivals Great Olympics in Accra.

If you're born in the city of Accra, you're either a Phobian or a Dade Boy mostly depending on your family lineage.

Expect plenty of strong challenges and a cauldron of an atmosphere for this one.

Form goes out the window and challenges are rash in games between these two sides.

Asante Kotoko v Hearts of Oak

Asante Kotoko vs Hearts of Oak - Hearts of Oak vs Asante Kotoko if you prefer—is, and will always be the biggest games of the season no matter the point difference separating the two sworn adversaries.

This game is one of the most atmospheric you could witness as it brings people from all walks of life to the stadium.

Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak's rivalry goes back to the 40's, and it isn't about to subside any time soon.

The Porcupine Warriors had the last laugh against their rivals last season after scoring a late dubious penalty to win 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Rainbow lads didn't get the opportunity to reclaim the three points in the second round as the campaign was annulled amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Both sides have made significant additions to their teams hence the encounter on Matchday 14 will be divine.

The match is scheduled to come off on Valentine's Day.
