Premier League Management Committee Chairman, Alhaji MND Jawula has revealed that the clubs are willing to continue the suspended 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season in order to avoid any legal tussle.
Football activities are still on hold in Ghana due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease. The hope of resuming soon was dashed when the government of Ghana extended the ban on social gatherings despite easing restrictions on non-contact sports.
Many has called for the total annulment of the season, with King Faisal FC Bankroller Alhaji Karim Grusah being the leading advocate. However, a section believes that, it should be continued when the situation is good to hold football games.
However, speaking to Kumasi-based Opemsuo Radio, the former Ghana Football Association Capo confirmed that the League will continue based on the outcome of the engagement between the GFA and CAF as well the government of Ghana for financial assistance.
“We want to continue the league to avoid legal tussles but that will be contingent on what comes out from our engagement with government and CAF for financial assistance,” Alhaji MND Jawula noted.
The Ghana Premier League was suspended in mid-March when it was in week 15.
Teams are still struggling to pay its players and officials due to the financial constraints since no external revenue is generated.
