To this end, the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and Women’s Premier League have all been suspended.

However, there have been calls from certain quarters to allow football to resume after the government eased restrictions on movements.

Dr. Nsiah-Asare said he personally agrees with those who want football activities to return within the next two months.

“The first phase will end on 31st July, and we will get to know when the next phase will begin in the course of our measures on COVID-19. But I personally agree with those who think football should be back in September,” the Presidential Advisor on Health said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association has set a June 30 deadline to communicate a final decision on the way forward for the country’s football.
