The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) has suggested that the 2017/2018 premier league should be truncated due to the current court injunction and dissolution of the Football Association by the Government.
Ace Sports Broadcaster and spokesperson for the liaison team, Dan Kweku Yeboah, reacting to questions on Happy 98.9 FM reiterated that the letter the liaison team wrote to GHALCA was specific. “We asked them for suggestions on a way forward with particular reference to the 2017/2018 league season.
“So they gave us a particular answer to a specific question on the subject. Because of court matters, the sub-committees of the Football Association (FA) organizing the league are not operational, so summing up current happenings, they feel things are not normal. Hence, they have advised that the season should end”. They however did not give a suggestion as to how promotions and demotions should be done.
Mr. Yeboah also stated that GHALCA stated in their letter that the liaison team should continue to engage FIFA so that things will be normalized. Until things are normalized, the liaison team is the only legal football body that FIFA recognizes that represents Ghana”.
He debunked the claims by some football administrators that their jurisdiction is mandated for only local football. He stated that international football is a product of local football. “…without domestic football, you cannot run international football”.
