GFA Set To Announce Premier League Kick Off Date

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) vice president, George Afriyie has revealed that the much awaited kick off date of the Ghana Premier League will soon be announced.

He hinted that the start of the date of the country's top-flight league will be made known by Friday after three months of delay following the governing body being entangled with legal issues.

There are speculations that the FA is set to let the league kick start in the coming weeks after hearing of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)’s rejection of the request by Tema Youth to prevent the start of the competition in the wake of their claims of not being treated fairly over their protest against Dreams FC using player Daniel Gozah, illegally.

There was also the threat of Hearts of Oak going to CAS to delay the league if the decision of the Appeals Committee of the FA awarding back Kotoko their ducted points was not reverted.

The Phobian’s silence however, looks like the FA might have done some good work behind the scene to tame the Oak Tree family who have a board member in the person of Frank Nwokolo Nelson serving on the FA.

Another issue which many felt could threaten the league was a warning issued by Techiman City in their case with Wa Africa United, which is before the Ethics Committee of the GFA.

Mr Afriyie who was speaking to Asempa FM said, "We have latest by Friday to reveal the start date of the competition. We will make this revelation on the official website of the Ghana FA."

For now, the FA seems to have put their house in order and would want to let Ghanaians see their league back with all its thrills.
