GPL game

The Ghana Football Association Executive Council few hours after CAF’s decisive executive videoconferencing meeting, cancelled her league despite jaw dropping sums involved.

A press release from GFA read: “the Executive Council will meet on Thursday, July 9, 2020 to discuss all issues relating to the next football season and Congress.

“The GFA will continue its engagement with all sponsors and all stakeholders following the cancellation of the season.”

Reports from the land of the Black Stars suggests an outrageous sum total of 2.2 million dollars has been lost in the process.

It is understable that a pandemic is staring the world in the face, but it is equally a fact that the world has witnessed and gone pass its peak.

Despite there not being a clear-cut resolution as to when the brouhaha on issues relating to Covid-19 will come to an end, an alternative (playing league games behind closed doors,) would have been perfect to salvage some funds.

On a second thought, Ghana’s 17,741 confirmed Covid-19 cases, plus 112 deaths as at the day of this write-up is enough to send a shiver down the spine of football stakeholders, who consider health first.

Aduana Stars topped the chart with 28 points, closely followed by Berukum Chelsea and Asante Kotoko – all of which now counts for nothing.

While those at the top half think and watch with despair, what would have been; Ebusua Dwarfs, Karela United and King Faisal, thank their stars as they all stay afloat.
