The GFA made the announcement after an Executive Council meeting on Tuesday. In a statement published on their website, the GFA stated:
“The GFA will continue to work with Government, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Sports Authority, the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the GFA Medical Committee, clubs and all relevant stakeholders to bring back football in the safest way for all participants.
The new season which will be run as a project will be dubbed – Football Against COVID-19 – offering entertainment to Ghanaians while staying safe at home.
The Executive Council also discussed the possibility of changing the format of the Leagues following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new season may be designed differently to ensure completion, and one of the scenarios being considered is playing behind closed doors at carefully selected game centres.
In a related development, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has decided to open the next football transfer window from Saturday, August 15, 2020, and end on Saturday, October 31, 2020, in accordance with the GFA regulations.
