NC Shelves Clubs Meeting

Dr Kofi Amoah

The Normalisation Committee (NC) of the Ghana Football Association has cancelled its scheduled meeting with football clubs.

Originally scheduled for today, the meeting was meant to discuss the start of the 2019/2020 league season.

In a statement, the NC stated that the decision to cancel the meeting was a result of ‘discouraging response’ from the clubs.

 Below is the full statement:

“The proposed meeting between representatives of clubs and GFA-NC officials to discuss the 2019/20 league season has been cancelled.

The meeting was to deliberate on the proposal to synchronize Ghana’s league calendar with Europe as mooted by some club officials.

The cancellation of the meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 17, is necessitated by discouraging response from the invited clubs.

The GFA-NC will avail itself for future stakeholder engagements on the above subject matter when necessary.

The GFA-NC wishes to state unequivocally that it is determined to wrap up within the stipulated mandate as spelt out by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

The public is, therefore, urged to regard as false any contrary information, surrounding the GFA-NC supposed intent to further seek an extension of its mandate.”
