The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been instructed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to make a decision on the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.
CAF says that the GFA has up to May 5 to come out with a final decision.
In a letter to the Ghana Football Association, CAF explained that the decision is needed to help it equally decide on the fate of its interclub competitions.
“We would appreciate receiving a reply by the 5th of May, 2020, in order to enable us to design a plan for the organization of our interclub competitions be it through competition or annulment. CAF is closely monitoring the situation with the stakeholders to know when our interclub competition would resume which would help to determine to what extent we can be flexible with the teams engagement for next season. Once we determine the date we are able to resume footballing activities, we would advise you when the leagues must be completed and concessions that would be made with regards to names submission, player registration and date next season will commence,” part of the letter reads.
Following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease in the country, the Ghana Football Association moved to indefinitely suspend its domestic leagues.
Currently, the government has placed a ban on all social gatherings, as part of measures to curb the spread of the virus which has claimed the lives of 11 persons in the country.
Already, some domestic leagues in other countries, including the Dutch Eredivisie and French Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, have been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
