Ghana Premier League restarts Friday October 30

Sep 21, 2020

President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo has lifted the ban on contact sports, paving the way for the resumption of competitive football activities in Ghana.

The President said this on Sunday, September 20, 2020 during his update number 17 on measures taken against the spread of Corona Virus.

Ghanaian clubs can now sigh relief with the ease on contact sports as the Ghana Premier League and the Division one league has been given the green light to restart on October 30, 2020.

''...after due consultations with the Ghana Football Association, it has been decided that the Ghana Premier League, the Division One League will restart on Friday 30th October with the full regime of the players, technical and management staff.

''No spectators will be allowed at the training centres and when actual competition resumes sitting at all stadia would be limited to 25% capacity to ensure social distancing. Wearing of masks by spectators at stadia will be mandatory."

Football has been on suspension since March 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, leading to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 season.

The green by the President for clubs to resume training as well as play the league is a welcome boost to clubs like Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold how will need to keep in shape ahead of their participation in the CAF inter-club competition.

''Towards the progressive easing of restrictions, Government has taken the decision to allow the resumption of training in all contact sports, taking into consideration the imminent participation of our national teams in international competitions. Indeed, some national teams have already been given the dispensation to begin training, ahead of their international engagements. All sports people, who are camped, are to be tested regularly''. President Nana Addo said.
