The new Ghana football season will commence in the second week of October, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced.
In a report seen by YEN.com.gh, the GFA said the 2020/21 season will commence in October subject to the Government of Ghana's approval.
The executive council of the GFA came up with the decision on Tuesday, 14 July, after taking into consideration a number of factors in relation to the game, safety protocols announced by the government, and the association’s continuous engagement with the COVID-19 Advisory Team.
The association said it will continue to work with government, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Sports Authority, the Ghana Health Service, the association's Medical Committee, clubs, and all relevant stakeholders to bring football back in the safest way for all participants.
The new season, which will be run as a project, will be dubbed 'Football Against COVID-19', offering entertainment to Ghanaians while they are staying safe at home.
The new season may be designed differently to ensure completion and one of the scenarios being considered is playing behind closed doors at carefully selected game centres.
The 2019/20 season was cancelled by the Ghana FA due to the spread of the coronavirus.
