The Ghana Football Association has taken a decision to Maintain an 18-team league for the foreseeable future from the 2019/2020 season onwards.
2 months ago at the October 25th extraordinary congress, a decision was taken to add both King Faisal and Accra Great Olympics to the 16-twam Ghana Premier League.
This was after a long standing dispute between the two clubs and the GFA. An 18-team league was then adopted by the GFA to settle the issue between both clubs and the FA once and for all.
To return the league to its normal state, a decision to relegate 5 teams in the upcoming season was agreed on.
This decision has however been overturned by the clubs as they have failed to agree on the decision and rather chosen to maintain an 18-team league going forward.
This will be the first time Ghana will be playing an 18-team league after adopting a 16-team league for so long.
Also at the GFA Congress, the Upper Regional FA chairman Salifu Zida was voted and subsequently sworn into the executive committee as the last and 12th member of the committee.
After his election, Mr. Zida is now the chairman of the referee’s committee.
