The Ghana FA has been given a May 5 deadline by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to decide whether or not the Ghana Premier League will continue or it will be annulled in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The directive was carried in a letter written by CAF to all its member associations on Tuesday and it stated that replies needed to be given by May 5 to give CAF enough time to plan for football later this calendar year.
Portions of the letter said:
”We would appreciate receiving a reply by the 5th of May, 2020, in order to enable us to design a plan for the organization of our interclub competitions be it through competition or annulment.
”CAF is closely monitoring the situation with the stakeholders to know when our interclub competition would resume which would help to determine to what extent we can be flexible with the teams engagement for next season.
”Once we determine the date we are able to resume footballing activities, we would advise you when the leagues must be completed and concessions that would be made with regards to names submission, player registration and date next season will commence.”
The Ghanaian league has been on suspension since March 15 and several other leagues on the continent have also been frozen due to the pandemic.
On the continental level, the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup have also been put on hold.
