The President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced that the ban on football will remain in force as his government takes key decisions towards the resumption of contact sport.
Since the middle of March, football and all other contact sporting disciplines have been on suspension.
The ban on the sports was placed by the government as one of several precautionary measures adopted in the midst of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic to stop the spread of the deadly disease.
Today, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has revealed when football and contact sport will likely be allowed to resume.
“In the next couple of weeks, a decision will also be taken on the resumption of contact sport including football, taking consideration the imminent participation of our national teams in international competitions”, the president said while addressing the nation on Sunday night.
He continued, “As a known lover of football, I know how devastating its absence has been, and it is my hope that very soon we will all have the pleasure of playing and watching the beautiful game again. Until then, non-contact sports are the only sporting events permitted to take place”.
Clubs in the country are eagerly awaiting the resumption of football in the country after staying at home for the past 5 months.
