GFA seeks two-week grace period from CAF to decide on 2019/2020 season - PRO

The Ghana Football Association Spokesperson, Henry Asante Twum, has disclosed that the FA has request for an extension from CAF to decide on the future of the 2019/20 football season as today marks the deadline for Member Associations to decide whether to continue or truncate the season.

The Ghana FA last week engaged the various stakeholders in a virtual meeting since the outbreak to decide on the future of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

Most of the clubs have suggested that the 2019/20 football season should be cancelled whilst others have spoken against the proposal.

The GFA is set to meet with the Executive Council after consulting with the clubs and then later with government and health authorities before taking a final decision.

Henry Asante Twum in an interview confirmed that the GFA has given CAF a situational report on the pandemic in Ghana.

"We have sent a situational report by giving CAF enough info on what is happening in Ghana", he told Asempa FM.

"We have notify them that we cannot take a decision without adhering to the directives from government. We have given CAF an update and we have requested for two weeks where by we will come up with a firm plan and decision going forward", he added.
