January football resumption reports false – Normalization Committee clears air

Spokesperson for the Committee Dan Kweku Yeboah, says the report that football will resume in January 2019 is false.

  • Published:

Ghana’s Normalisation Committee set up to manage football in the country has vehemently refuted claims that football will return in January 2019.

The Committee was set up some months ago by FIFA to oversee the running of football in the country following the fallout from Anas’ exposé.

Football in the country has been suspended since the “Number 12” documentary, which implicated over 77 Ghanaian football officials and referees, was premiered.

However, earlier this week there were reports that the Normalisation Committee has reached an agreement with Premier and Division One clubs for football to return in January.

Reports circulating in the local media suggested all parties have agreed to engage in a stop gap competition between January and June as they wait for regular league activity to be sorted out.

But responding to this, Spokesperson for the Committee Dan Kweku Yeboah, says the reports are false.

The release making rounds is not coming from the Normalization Committee but what happened is that we put together a special competition which was supposed to comprise Premier and Division one clubs to make up 64 teams,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

He explained further: “After drawing the modalities we met the Chief Executives of the various clubs and they also gave us their take on the matter where they suggested separate competitions for the various Divisions.

“Dr Kofi Amoah asked them to put their proposals on paper for submission, they did so and submitted the proposals last week.

“However, there has been no official response as to approval or disapproval from the Normalization Committee yet so I do not know the source that says an agreement has been reached.
