Active football in Ghana to resume next month

The Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee has announced that active football will resume next year with the introduction of a “special competition”.

The new competition will start on January 26, 2019, and it will involve all 16 Premier League clubs as well as 48 clubs in the second-tier.

According to a statement signed by President of the Normalization Committee, the competition will keep all the clubs active during the GFA normalization process.

It will also produce Ghana’s representatives for the next CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup respectively.

Football activities in Ghana have been on hold since the airing of the Number 12 documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas in June.

Following the documentary, the Kwesi Nyantakyi-led Ghana Football Association was dissolved by the government with Fifa appointing the Normalization Committee to steer the affairs of the country’s football.

Below is the full statement:

The GFA Normalization Committee is pleased to announce that it has outlined the way forward for the resumption of official domestic football activities in the country.

The Normalization Committee has approved a new competition structure, which will involve all sixteen (16) Premier League clubs and all forty-eight (48) Division One League clubs in the country.

The new competition, which will keep all the clubs active during the GFA normalization process, as well as produce Ghana’s representatives for the next CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup respectively, is scheduled to start on January  26, 2019, and end on April 21, 2019

The Normalization Committee appreciates the quest of our members and football-loving Ghanaians for football to return, hence the extra effort we put in place to find the needed resources for this special competition.

The GFA will soon announce a date for the launch of the Special GFA Normalization Committee competition, where all details of the competition will be spelt out to the general public through our friends from the media.

In a related development, the Normalization Committee has taken cognizance of a proposal by Premier League Clubs for a separate competition involving only the sixteen Premier League Clubs.

The premier league clubs presented to the GFA Normalization Committee a competition format with support budget, which the GFA favours once funding for the competition is raised.

The proposed Premier League competition will run simultaneously with the Special Normalization Committee competition once the Premier League Clubs are able to raise funding for the competition they have proposed.

We look forward to an exciting return of domestic football in the country with the support of all our stakeholders.

Thank you.
