The Ghana Football Association has decided not to cancel football activities in the country as the 2019/2020 football season remains on hold due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Football activities have since March 16, 2020, been suspended until further notice following the government’s ban on all public gatherings.
The Executive Council, at a meeting on May 5, 2020, said the Association will continue to monitor the situation and revisit its decision on June 30, 2020, to assess if the season can continue.
GFA declared that “the status quo remains, stating that the Association is in various engagements with Government, the Ministry of Health, the Ghana Health Service, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the GFA Medical Committee, CAF and FIFA.”
“The Executive Council further decided that the Association will continue to monitor the situation and would revisit it on June 30, 2020, after a careful assessment and evaluation of the issue and to take further decisions,” parts of the statement read.
GFA has assured that it will consider all factors and take all necessary decisions to ensure the safety of all participants and the smooth completion of the season.
