In the wake of the court injunction which has cancelled the start of the new Ghana Premier League season, the country’s FA has called off its scheduled congress.

The 24th Ordinary Congress of the Ghana Football Association was supposed to begin today and run until Friday. It is an important decision-making event which sets out the plan for the country’s new football season.

But the injunction served to the FA by relegated club Great Olympics, who allege that Bechem United fielded an ineligible player against them last seasom, has resulted in the cancellation of the congress.

“The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has indefinitely postponed the 24th Ordinary session of Congress which was scheduled to be held at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence (GSCE) in Prampram on Thursday February 8, 2018,” a statement on the website of the federation read.

“This postponement is as a result of a legal action brought against the Association by Accra Great Olympics Football Club Limited.

“The GFA has also indefinitely postponed its much publicized GFA Seminar for the Premier, Division One, Women League clubs, Match Officials and the Media scheduled for Wednesday February 7 at the GSCE in Prampram.

“The GFA sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this postponement.”

Ghana’s top two divisions will seemingly remain in limbo until the legal wrangle is resolved.
