GHALCA to organize mini-tournament for clubs
The Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) is set to organize a mini-tournament in a bid to keep the clubs active.
GHALCA who are the mother of clubs has received a proposal from StarTimes to organize a tournament in place of the truncated Ghana Premier League and the statement released on Monday says the proposed tournament is set to be called the StarTimes Cup.
Filling the void created by the truncated Premier League as well as sustaining the interest of the supporters are a couple of objectives mentioned in the statement with regards to the proposed league.
“We want to organise a competition to keep the clubs active since we don’t know when the Normalization committee will come and when active football will resume in the country,” Otuo Acheampong Barima Boadaa who is the Communications Director of GHALCA told Happy FM.
“The number of clubs that respond to us will indicate the number of clubs that will partake. Clubs that are available and willing to join will make up the competition.”
“We are giving clubs up to 28th of September to respond to us if they want to be part of our competition,” he added.
The Ghana Premier League has been suspended following Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ video which uncovered massive corruption and other illegalities in the game.
The proposed tournament will be featured by teams both from the Premier League and Division One League Clubs.
