The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have announced its decision to cancel the 2019/2020 football season.
This comes following an over 5 hours long Executive Council meeting held today Tuesday 30th June 2020 at the GFA Secretariat in Accra, with the GFA announcing their decision on their official Twitter handle.
This means the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season together with the Division One League and the Women’s League have all been canceled with no information given by the GFA as to the declaration of champions or if teams will be relegated following the decision.
Ghana football has not completed a full season for the third time in a row as in 2018 the season was canceled halfway into its run when the Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ expose was released resulting in the cancellation of football in the country, then in 2019, the Normalisation Committee would organize a special competition to select the country’s representatives for Africa instead of a league campaign.
Football in the country has been suspended since the middle of March as part of government’s measures to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic but with many calling on the GFA to provide clarity on the current football season, the country’s football governing body decided to hold a meeting on 30th June 2020 before making a decision.
