The President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced that the Ghana Premier League and the Division One League will restart on October 30, 2020.
According to the president, the decision has been taken following deliberations with the country’s football governing body.
“With respect to football, after due consultations with the Ghana Football Association, it has been decided that the Ghana Premier League and the Division One Football League will restart on Friday, 30th October, with a full regime of testing of the players, technical and management staff”, H.E Nana Addo announced on Sunday night during his 17th address to the Nation on Covid-19.
This comes on the back of a ban on football which was issued in the middle of March by the president as part of measures by his government to stop the spread of the Coronavirus disease.
With the country gradually winning the war against the deadly disease, football can now finally resume.
Clubs will have to make arrangements for players and technical teams to be tested for the Covid-19 and then start training ahead of the start of the 2020/2021 football season.
