Official: Ghana Football Association announce start date for 2019-20 league season

The Ghana Premier League is set for a return on December 21, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced.

On hold since a bribery and match-fixing scandal truncated the 2017-18 season halfway in June last year, the return of the domestic top-flight is welcome news to the Ghanaian football fraternity.

It marks the end of months of uncertainty concerning the status of the championship.

Significantly, the league will include 18 teams after a GFA Extraordinary Congress increased the number of teams from 16 last month. It will be Ghana's first 18-club league since 1980.
