The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that the 2020/2021 season will commence in November.
This follows the decision of government to give the green light for football to resume.
The nations flagship competition, the Ghana Premier League is expected to kick start from Friday, November 13, 2020, while, the Division One League kicks off on December 3, 2020. For the Women’s Premier League, it will start on January 2, 2021.
Clubs will need to fulfil all Club Licensing Regulation requirements. The Club Licensing Board has the responsibility of vetting the license application of the clubs to ensure compliance with legal, administrative, finance, technical, medical and security requirement of the GFA Club Licensing Regulation before issuing licenses to clubs. This should be submitted on or before October 5, 2020.
On October 6, 2020, the Club Licensing Board is expected to begin inspection of venues and secretariat of clubs in the Premier, Division One and the Women’s Premier League.
This will help affirm the decision to approve various centres submitted by the Clubs if they meet the criteria.
The various Clubs are to register their players at all levels for the new season to begin and it is expected to end on October 1, 2020.
The Premier League, Division One and the Women’s league clubs have up to midnight (23:59 GMT) of November 5, 2020, to submit the final list of their players and officials for the new season.
