Barring any miracle from the powers that be in Ghana football, the 2014/2015 football season will start next year according to investigations.

The league which was scheduled to commence two months ago has been hit by a court case involving the bankroller of King Faisal football Club and the Ghana Football Association, as both parties are trying to settle the matter out of court, with Alhaji Gruzah confirming that both parties would be heading for court on November 14.

Reports in the media has it that Alhaji Karim Gruzah, is said to have rejected offers from the Ghana Football Association to dissuade him from continuing his legal pursuit, insisting that his club be allowed to compete in the Premier League.

This unyielding posture has left the local football authority in a quagmire with no option but to follow the Faisal owner to court.

According to a graphic sports report, the FA’s attorney, Thaddeus Sory, met with the Faisal boss and his legal representative, Egbert Fabille Jnr. last Sunday in a desperate bid to seek an amicable settlement of an impasse that has stalled the commencement of the Premier League.

Faisal are challenging their relegation from the Premier League after claiming Aduana Stars failed to pay a fine which they incurred from a protest in which they lost against Accra Hearts of Oak last season.

By the FA’s Statute, any club that fails to pay their fine within 14 days would forfeit points from matches played afterwards and Faisal have, therefore, asked the GFA apply that statute by deducting points from Aduana Stars’ for breach of the statute.

Whatever the outcome of the court case on the November 14, one thing is for certain, and that it is before the kickoff date, there are a host of activities that have to be fulfilled and honored.

The first will be setting another date for congress, an action that will give the new start date of the football season. Secondly, the exercise of verification by all 16 Clubs will also take some time, not to for forget that a few days into the month of January 2015 AFCON will commence, i.e. 17 January through to 8 February 2015.

As it stands now, no one knows whether the final judgment will be given on the 14th of November, or it will be adjourned again.

The situation is not becoming funny anymore as all the Clubs including power house like Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are even complaining about the issues, as it is affecting their finances.
