Second transfer window opened despite Ghana league suspension over coronavirus

Ghanaian clubs will get the opportunity to sign players in the transfer window despite the suspension of the league by government due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Vice-Chairman of the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) Jesse Agyapong stated that despite football activities suspended for the next four weeks, clubs will be allowed to sign players in the transfer window.

The second transfer window opened on Monday March 16, 2020 with clubs expected to make new additions to beef up their squad ahead when the league resumes.

The directive from the government to suspend all public gatherings for the next four weeks meant the 2019/20 Ghana League season has been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Jesse in an interview indicated clubs will have the chance to operate during this window despite the suspension.

“Ghana Premier league second transfer window still opens today, registration of players will go on even though GFA has suspended all football competitions,” Jesse Agyapong told Oyerepa FM.

He further said that the league will only resume if the government lifts the ban on public gathering which is currently in place.

“The league will not resume till the President of Ghana says otherwise or allows gathering of people. Clubs can register players at the FA because the necessary steps have being put in place,”.

Two Premier League games involving King Faisal versus Hearts and Asante Kotoko versus Inter Allies which were to be played on Monday were postponed.
