GFA to call for stakeholders meeting on league delay next Monday


Emergency Committee member of the Ghana Football Association Kweku Ayiah has revealed that a meeting involving the association’s top hierarchy and Premier and Division One clubs will be held next Monday.

The meeting according to him will address the current situation of uncertainty over the start date of the Ghana Premier League which has forced almost all the Premier League clubs to alter their pre-season plans.

The clubs, especially the premier league teams have expressed worry and Kweku Ayiah who doubles as an executive committee member explains to Joy Sports the top hierarchy of the association is equally worried as the clubs.

“We have a league calendar which we abide by it but we have situations where they are matters of litigation, we also migrated from the CAF platform to the FIFA platform so the clubs had to be taken through registration processes,” he told Joy Sports

“The ideal situation was that after the registration the league would have started, unfortunately there was one case which was pending at review with the other one at the Ethics committee and with that case it can take forever but it is not a question of not having the league going on.

“It is a worry to the GFA, the executive committee, the emergency committee as well as the President so what the GFA intend to do is that we have invited all the clubs for a stakeholders meeting on Monday for us to jaw-jaw to put our together to decide in the best way forward.”
