The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has tentatively set the first week of October for the commencement of the 2020/2021 football season.
The decision was arrived on Wednesday July 15, 2020 when the hierarchy of the football governing body held their all-important meeting to discuss the way forward after the previous season was annulled.
However, the Ghana FA will be seeking for direction from the Government of Ghana and the Ministry of Health on the future of the novel COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ghana FA unanimously truncated the 2019-20 football season on health grounds. The season was put on hold after the Akufo Addo government placed a ban on social gatherings until July 31, 2020.
The Executive is expected to review the restrictions but it is still unclear whether the ban on contact Sports would be eased.
Per the ExCo’s discussion, if government eases the restrictions on contact Sports, the new season will start in October and end in May 2021.
The Ghana FA is yet to officially release the calendar for the coming season.
