GFA takes decision on 2019/2020 football season tomorrow

Published on: 29 June 2020

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) will take a decision on the fate of the 2019/2020 football season on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

It can be recalled that in May, a letter signed by GFA president Kurt Okraku to the clubs revealed that the body will decide on the fate of the season at the end of the month.

Subsequently in an interview with GTV Sports Plus, he assured the football community of continuous engagement with stakeholders before a final decision will be taken on June 20.

“We have not decided yet to annul the league. The executive council met a few days ago to consider all the possibilities after which we issued a statement that we will continue to work closely with the government and the Health Ministry to see what the turnout would be.

“Beyond that, we gave ourselves a deadline of June 30 by which time the council will meet again to take a definite decision as to whether to continue with the league or truncate or cancel it under the circumstances within and outside the shores of Ghana”, Kurt Okraku said.

With the deadline set for tomorrow, the Ghana FA should come out with an announcement of the fate of the season in the next 24 hours.

Checks have revealed that even though health experts advise against the resumption of football activities until September, the GFA wants to complete this season and may allow the campaign to stay on hold until when government lifts the ban on football activities.
