Action returns to all eight centres this Sunday, when the Onetouch Premier League bounces back for the 2008/2009 season.
Debutants, Bechem Chelsea, Eleven Wise and St. Mirren, appear ready to throw a strong challenge to begin their campaign on a good footing.
But, that appears a gargantuan task, as their respective opponents appear favourites on paper.
That notwithstanding, the newcomers hankering to announce their presence in the elite league, is what makes Sunday's clashes dicey.
One of the new entrants, Chelsea, will come face to face with in-form and Top 4 leaders Liberty Professionals at the Ohene Djan Stadium, while St. Mirren play revamped Hearts of Oak at the El-Wak Stadium, in Accra.
Another debutant, Eleven Wise, after a decade in the lower league, will trek to Abrankese to play Kessben FC.
Defending Champions, Asante Kotoko, will play as guests of Alhaji Gruzah's King Faisal at the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra, with All Blacks hosting Tema Youth at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape Coast. At the Essipong Stadium, Hasaacas will host Wa All Stars, with Heart of Lions trekking to Berekum to play as guests of Arsenal.
