Ghana Premier League outfit Medeama Sporting Club will be taken part in the Ghana FA’s Normalization Committee Special Competition set to kick off next weekend after initially pulling out. The Tarkwa-based side were livid after their petition to the Normalization Committee to revise the fixtures was ignored.
However, the Yellow and Mauve have shockingly made a U-turn to the competition citing reasons that it’s in the interest of Ghana Football.
“In the supreme interest of Ghana football, @MedeamaSC has agreed to participate in the @ghanafaofficial Special Competition. We will be housed in the Northern zone. Let’s enjoy football,” A statement from the club’s official Twitter handle.
Per the current decision, Medeama SC must travel 145.2km to Obuasi, 205.4km to Kumasi, 298.4km to Bechem, 362.3km to Techiman, 328.8km to Berekum, 309.1km to Dorma Ahenkro and 664.6km to Wa to honour matches in the Northern zone.
The launch of the competition will take place at the GFA Secretariat in Accra on Monday, March 25 at 5:30 PM.
The Special Competition comes at a timely moment as clubs will be kept busy while the Normalization Committee continues with the reformation of Ghana football after FIFA extended their mandate to September 30.
