President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, has assured that football in the country will return soon.

Football in the West African was suspended in mid-March following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic. However, the entire 2019/20 football season was annulled in June.

President Akufo Addo during his 16th address of the nation on the measures to combat the spread of coronavirus hinted that football will soon return.

Speaking at the GFA’s 26th Ordinary Congress at Prampram, Kurt Okraku revealed that in the few weeks, measures will be put in place to ensure the return of football.

The GFA President noted that these comments were encouraging and suggested the imminent return of the game in Ghana.

He added that when football activities are allowed to resume, the current administration will work to ensure the game prospers.

“If we listen to our President, our football is coming back. It’s coming back stronger.

"We will work to reignite passion and create wealth for all,” he said.

Ghana has recorded 42,963 cases with 276 deaths.
Meanwhile, the ban on non-contact sports like golf, tennis, athletics, badminton, table tennis, triathlon and cricket was eventually lifted at the end of June
