The 2020-2021 season of the Ghana’s top-flight is scheduled to start on November 13, 2020.
This follows the decision of government of Ghana to give green light for the resumption of contact sports on October 30, 2020.
Football has been halted for over six months in Ghana since the outbreak Covid-19, which led to the cancellation of the 2019-2020 football season.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed that the 2020-2021 season of the Ghana Premier League will commence on November 13.
The Division One League will start on December 3, 2020. Commencement of the Women’s Premier League will follow on January 2, 2021.
“Clubs will need to fulfil all Club Licensing Regulation requirements. The Club Licensing Board has the responsibility of vetting the license application of the clubs to ensure compliance with legal, administrative, finance, technical, medical and security requirement of the GFA Club Licensing Regulation before issuing licenses to clubs. This should be submitted on or before October 5, 2020,” the FA posted on their official website.
“On October 6, 2020, the Club Licensing Board is expected to begin inspection of venues and secretariat of clubs in the Premier, Division One and the Women’s Premier League. This will help affirm the decision to approve various centers submitted by the Clubs if they meet the criteria.
“The various Clubs are to register their players at all levels for the new season to begin and it is expected to end on October 1, 2020.”
