The Normalization Committee has confirmed that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Extra-Ordinary Congress will be held on Thursday, September 5, 2019.
The program was officially scheduled to come off August 19 but had to be rescheduled following concerns raised by football administrators in relations to specific articles in the current GFA Statutes.
According to the NC, the new date will allow them to fully comply with relevant provisions of the Statutes of the GFA without ambiguity and also offers the body the unique opportunity of welcoming to Ghana a FIFA representative as a special guest for this historic Congress.

The Normalization Committee of the GFA, in its quest to fully comply with relevant provisions of the Statutes of the GFA without ambiguity, has rescheduled the Extra-Ordinary Congress of the GFA from Wednesday, August 19 to Thursday, September 5, 2019.
The rescheduling clears any ambiguity over interpretation of relevant provisions of the GFA Statutes by stakeholders, regarding the number of days required for Extra-Ordinary Congress as well as the agenda for the Extraordinary Congress as earlier communicated.
The rescheduling also offers us the unique opportunity of welcoming to Ghana a FIFA representative as a special guest for this historic Congress.
We are looking forward to welcoming our stakeholders for what is anticipated to be a very successful Congress towards the forward match of Ghana football.
