The Chairman of the Normalization Committee, Dr Kofi Amoah has disclosed the date for the commencement of the Ghana Premier League 2019-2020 season.
The 2018/2019 Zylofon Premier League was truncated following an investigation by ace undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas which uncovered the corrupt practices in the local game leading to a lifetime ban on Ghana Football Association capo and CAF Vice president, Kwesi Nyatakyi.
After the truncation of the league, FIFA instituted the Normalization Committee headed by Dr Kofi Amoah where they organized a novelty league (Special competition) to keep the clubs busy and also select representatives for next season’s CAF inter-club competitions.
However, speaking to the media, Dr Kofi Amoah said, “the next league season will start in August, the GFA will communicate to them (GPL Clubs), they already have an idea but we also know that we are going through the normalization process of changing the statues.
FIFA has approved what we have done and we now have to place it in front of Congress, once it’s been approved we heard for elections.”
Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko won the NC Special Cup (Tier 1) and will represent Ghana in next season’s CAF Champions League while the winner of Ashgold and Nzema Kotoko in the NC Special Tier 2 competition will play in the CAF Confederation Cup.
