The 2019-2020 Ghana Premier League, GPL season has been on a standstill for the past two months as officials of the Ghana Football Association, GFA continue to brainstorm to identify safe ways of playing football without the threats of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

As part of the proposed mechanisms to handle the situation, a school of thought holds that footballers should be tested before the league resumes.

The GFA medical team has now revealed that clubs will have to spend huge sums of money to test their players on CoronaVirus if the league has to resume amidst this Covid-19 era.

This is nearly an unattainable option for most of the GPL clubs as they will be forced to go out of their means if this option is employed.

Ghanaians and club officials have been divided as to whether the league should continued or be curtailed.

Meanwhile the FA has set up to the ending of June to decide the final fate.

Earlier this week, National Sports Authority disclosed that, clubs have to pay GHC60,000 before they can use the national stadia to honour a single home game.

In the midst of all these, the FA’s medical team has disclosed to the clubs that they will spend $100 on each player for the test on the coronavirus.

“The medical team of the GFA has informed the Division One Clubs that it will take them $100 to test each player in Division One for Coronavirus.”
Mr. Osei Richmond – President of Division One Club, Unity FC revealed to FOX FM.

Going by the fact that GFA is keen on sports without threats to the actors health, it will there easy to deduce that football can only resume when the virus has been found out or when playing presents no health threats.
