rlfg0

The Rugby League Federation Ghana (RLFG) have announced they will be resuming training on 8th October 2020.

The decision comes following a meeting held by Executives of the RLFG and the Club Managers on 24th September 2020. The meeting which was held on Zoom was to discuss the return of activities.

In regards to the return of activities, members had to vote on two options; (1) For clubs to train from October to November 2020 and participate in a friendly event in December 2020 or (2) For clubs to train for rest of the year, play training matches and start all over in 2021.

After several deliberations the first option was selected, meaning clubs will begin training from 8th October 2020 with a friendly event to kick off in December 2020.

All sports including Rugby League were banned back in mid-March 2020 as part of the government’s measures to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, and after over 6 months President Nana Akufo-Addo lifted the ban allowing the return of contact sports.

The RLFG has used the ongoing pandemic to better itself through training and promotion (through both traditional and social media), and have made a name for itself internationally, with Middle East-Africa (MEA) Rugby League Director, Remond Safi, stating his belief that the country could emerge as a powerhouse in the sport.

“Looking forward to RLWC2025 [2025 Rugby League World Cup], I can see some of the nations making an impact. South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and Morocco could emerge quite quickly due to the amount of experienced players that they could call upon from France, Australia and the UK in support of their own domestic talent.”
