The National Sports Authority (NSA) continues with its preparations towards the upcoming league season with the third phase of pitch preparation done on Friday 23rd October 2020, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

This phase which started with the application of NPK 15.10.10 fertilizer comes after mowing works and the spraying of selective herbicide was done on the pitch.

The CEO of Green Grass Technology, Frank Boahene, reiterated the importance of this phase to the development of the pitch, saying, it is the application of the fertilizer that will help to enrich the soil and make it grow, thus, bringing its green colour out as expected.

He, however, stated that the development of the pitch will not end there but will continue in the subsequent days until it meets the required FIFA approved standard.

The 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League (GPL) season is scheduled to kick off on the weekend of November 13-16 at match venues across the country.

The upcoming 2020/2021 GPL season which is set to kick-off on 13th November 2020, is expected to run through until the weekend of July 16-18, 2021.

Ashantigold SC, Asante Kotoko SC, Medeama SC will all begin the new season at home whereas Hearts of Oak, Karela FC and Dreams FC will be on the road on Matchday 1 of the season.
