Unconfirmed reports claims the 2014/15 First Capital Plus League will not commence as scheduled over a latest injunction slapped on the Ghana FA by King Faisal but the GFA insists the competition will start this weekend.

A Ghana FA statement released on Friday afternoon read: “The Ghana Football Association (GFA) wishes to inform all Premier League Clubs, match-day officials and the general public to disregard reports in sections of the media that the 2014/2015 First Capital Plus Premier League will not kick off on Saturday January 17, 2015 as planned.”

This statement follows fast circulating reports that King Faisal has slapped the association with a fresh injunction to prevent the start of the Ghanaian top flight.

The Ghana FA had secured permission to hold its annual Congress – a pre-requisite for the start of the football season from the court pending the final determination of the case instigated by relegated King Faisal.

The initial injunction placed on the GFA from holding its Congress was thus lifted on condition the association presents an undertaken it will restore King Faisal back to the Ghanaian top flight if it is successful in its case.

But with the Ghanaian top flight set to kickoff on Saturday after a three-month delay, reports claim King Faisal have served the GFA with a writ preventing the commencement of the league.

The GFA however insists and have instructed all participating clubs and officials to observe Match Day 1 fixtures as scheduled.
