According to the GFA President, the GFA Medical Team, General Secretary and the Competitions Department have presented sound proposals to Government through the Government Advisory Team on COVID-19 as well as the Sports Ministry.

"I have personally met with the Government Advisory Team on COVID-19 led by Dr. Nsiah Asare to discuss the possible return of football and what we would require to actualize it, resulting in a discussion on a roadmap for the safe return of football.

"The Ministry of Health, the Ghana Health Service and the Government of Ghana have been very open and supportive in these deliberations," Mr. Okraku said in a press statement.
