Division One League clubs have reportedly drafted a proposal to the Ghana Football Association requesting the council to delay the start of the new Ghana Premier League season.
However, the GFA announce in November that the new season would kick off on the weekend of December 28 and now it has become an issue for the Division One clubs as they wish for the league to commence in January 2020 as they feel they have not been given enough time to prepare.
The proposal was quoted by Prime News Ghana as follows: “As much as we respect the decision of the Executive Council to have the league start on 27/12/19, we humbly request that you consider the peculiar situation of the 48 Division Clubs and postpone the start of the Division One to 10th January 2020, and to allow the Premiership Clubs which will play 34 matches, 4 more than the Division One to kick start on the postponed date in other not to distort the program for commencement”
“We believe if this proposal is considered by your Honourable council it will afford us good and adequate preparation for the perfect start to the season to bring the love back”
“We entreat the Executive Council to include the proposal in the agenda to be discussed at the next Congress and subject it to voting by members,” their statement read.
A number of the Division One League clubs have added their signatures to the proposal; they include Wa Suntaa, Steadfast, Nkoranza Warriors, Tamale City, Nea Salamina, Young Apostles, Ba United, Kintanmpo FC, to name a few.
