The Ghana Football Association is expected to announce a decision regarding the current season on Tuesday June 30th.
The Ghana premier league was halted after Week 15 in March following the outbreak of the Covid-19 as government of Ghana suspended all sporting activities in the country and issued several forms of restrictions for both persons and institutions.
”We have not decided yet to annul the league. The executive council met a few days ago to consider all the possibilities after which we issued a statement that we will continue to work closely with the government and the Health Ministry to see what the turnout would be. Beyond that, we gave ourselves a deadline of June 30 by which time the council will meet again to take a definite decision as to whether to continue with the league or truncate or cancel it under the circumstances within and outside the shores of Ghana,” Kurt said during a Happy FM- GTV zoom conference in May.
Kurt continued: ”It is the Executive Council that has the power to decide on the league, so we can only make a definite statement on June 30. But within this period, we will continue to engage the key stakeholders. I am working closely with the GFA Medical Committee headed by the very experienced Dr Baba Adam, with Dr Percy and Dr Kofi Ablorh and we are looking at all possible scenarios. Based on their advice, I will go to the state authorities to engage them on the way forward.
Meanwhile no contact sports can resume until July 31st and according to presidential health advisor – Dr. Nsiah Asare – competitive football will not be back until September meaning the prospect of finishing the current season and starting preparations for the next season is becoming increasingly difficult.
