Let’s restart football in September – Nana Yaw Amponsah

President for Division One club, Phar Rangers FC, Nana Yaw Amponsah, has proposed to the Ghana Football Association to consider restarting the league in September to sync with the European calender.

According to Nana Yaw Amponsah, with most countries across Europe targeting a restart of their leagues in September, Ghana should also try to emulate that to synchronize the Ghana Football season with that of the European calender.

“If we want to synchronize our league with that of Europe, then we must wait and start in September. At the moment the Accra Sports Stadium pitch will not be ready for football for the next one month” he said.

“Lets give ourselves up to September to start a new league so clubs can start to prepare and meet the club licensing requirements”, he added.

He also mentioned that starting the league in September will also help Ghanaian clubs in the transfer market.

The Ghana Football Association is set to announce to the clubs on June 30 on the future of the season whether to truncate the season or continue.
