Ghana Clubs Try To Avoid Fifa Ban By Lifting Suspension

Array

Ghana’s top-flight football clubs have agreed to lift their self-imposed suspension on playing.
The clubs agreed to stop playing in protest against a raid on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), carried out by an anti-fraud unit.
Football’s world governing body Fifa had warned of “adverse consequences” if the game did not return to normal.
The clubs have now agreed to return to action and will play FA Cup matches on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Ghana Professional League board will confirm the lifting of a suspension of league action later on Monday.
In a separate move, GFA headquarters re-opened on Monday for the first time since last week’s raid by the country’s Economic and Organised Crime Office.
It is not yet clear if the lifting of the suspension and the re-opening of the GFA will be enough to dissuade Fifa from taking action.
