Accra, Sept. 22, GNA – The Ghana League Clubs
Association (GHALCA) is undecided on the number of teams to play in the annual
preseason tournament organized for top on the table premier league clubs at the
end of every season.
The tournament format was changed from the
usual top four teams to top six teams in last year’s edition.
At a meeting held in Accra yesterday to decide
on the new format, the executives were divided on how this year’s competition
should be orgainsed.
A member of the GHALCA Executive Committee,
Otuo Acheampong, told reporters after the meeting that there was no concrete
agreement; so the meeting was rescheduled for Wednesday September 28.
“All the members were of different opinions.
Some suggested top four, others top six and even top eight, though the dominant
opinion was the top eight.”
“But even with that, different formats
were suggested for it. So we finally agreed that all members should write a
proposal and present it on Wednesday. Then we sort it out with the majority
opinion having their way,” Mr. Acheampong noted.
Nonetheless, rumours are rife that the top
eight format is likely to be accepted by the new executives. The top eight
format if accepted will include the top five premier league clubs, whilst the
three newly promoted clubs from division One will join up with them.
This will be the first tournament organized by
the Kudjo Fianoo led administration.
