The 2020/21 football season in Ghana will finally commence on 30 October 2020, president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced.
Ghana’s elite division (Ghana Premier League and Division One League) will start at the end of next month.
The government placed an embargo on all football-related activities in March 2020 following the outbreak of the coronavirus in Ghana. This decision led to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 football season and as such, all records associated with it were expunged.
Speaking during his COVID-19 update number 17 on Sunday, September 20, President Nana Addo announced that the resumption of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League and the Division One League will restart on Friday 30th October 2020.
”With respect to football, after due consultations with the Ghana Football Association, it has been decided that the Ghana Premier League and the Division One Football League will restart on Friday, 30th October, with a full regime of testing of the players, technical and management staff,” he said.
