The Ghana Football Association [GFA] is set to roll out plans for the start of the 2020/21 football season.

The country's football governing body have been given the go ahead to start the season on October 30 during President Akufo Addo's 17th address of the nation on the measures to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Communications Director of the Ghana FA, Henry Asante Twum, the Executive Council will meet to discuss and roll out plans for the start of the season.

“We will look into it again, the competitions department of the GFA will sit down with the medical committee and come out with a proper plan and that will also be considered by the Executive Council,” he said in an interview with Citi Sports.

“In the coming days, we will roll out a plan and make it known to the public,” he concluded.

The 2019/20 football season was truncated in June following the outbreak of coronavirus in mid-March.

Meanwhile, the season will be played in two zones, i.e, Northern and Southern zone.

Asante Kotoko and Ashgold will represent Ghana in the 2020/21 Caf Champions League and Caf Confederations Cup respectively.

The Ghana Football Association had already sent proposals to the various clubs and the government’s COVID-19 Task Force, to outline strict protocols they intended to implement on the return of football.
