The GFA Advisory Committee on the proposed 18-club National Division One League held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, at the GFA Headquarters in Accra.
The first meeting was basically set up for members of the Committee to fraternize, discuss the feasibility in reducing the number of clubs from 48 to 18, its implementation and other factors that will be essential on the future of the second-tier competition.
