Ghana just like every African country has been affected by the Covid-19, leading to the suspension of the football season for the past couple of months.

While it is unknown when the fight against the disease will be won, nobody knows when it will be same for the sport to resume in the region.

In a letter from CAF to its member associations including Ghana, it has asked to be furnished with how the various associations are planning to finalize the football season.

“In view of the current circumstance, we would like to enquire about the current situation of your national leagues/national cups (ranking, number of pending matches, etc.) as well as the strategies your intend to apply to finalize those competitions be it through competition or annulment”, a CAF letter dated April 26, 2020, said.

CAF says it will stand on the feedback from the Ghana FA and the other football associations to design a plan for the organization of inter-club competitions for the next season.

The GFA has until May 5, 2020, to submit its plans to CAF.
