JUST IN: Normalization committee cancels stakeholders meeting with clubs; insist clubs are unwilling to jaw jaw

Published on: 16 July 2019

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) has canceled their proposed meeting with the various clubs in the country to discuss the upcoming league over what it describes as discouraging response from the clubs.

The body tasked to reform Ghana football through a letter invited clubs to a meeting on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, to discuss the way forward as far as the resumption of the local league is concerned.

Just a day to the meeting, it has been cancelled due to the unwillingness of club owners to honour the meeting.

A Statement from the GFA Normalization Committee earlier today explained, “The proposed meeting between representatives of clubs and GFA-NC officials to discuss the 2019/20 league season has been cancelled”.

“The meeting was to deliberate on the proposal to synchronize Ghana’s league calendar with Europe as mooted by some club officials”.

“The cancellation of the meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 17, is necessitated by discouraging response from the invited clubs”.

Nonetheless, the interim body has assured that they will avail themselves for any engagements in the future if the clubs decided to sit down with them to discuss the possible return of the local league.

“The GFA-NC will avail itself for future stakeholder engagements on the above subject matter when necessary”, a part of the statement shared.
