The chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association ( GHALCA), Mr Cudjoe Fianoo has asured the football population of Ghana that clubs will be ready for the start of the new Ghana Premier league season which kicks off on November 13, 2020. 

Football in Ghana have been suspended since March this year due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the chairman of GHALCA told Time Sports that the 18 professional clubs in Ghana are preparing for resumption of the new campaign.

The chairman also lamented on the poor management of football in Ghana.

“Ghana football has been in the mud for sometime now. It came to a halt for over a year and half because of the Anastasia No. 12 Expose that led to the formation of a normalization committee which came up with a mini league to keep the clubs active for that period.

With some light at the end of the tunnel for the new administration which saw the resumption of competitive football in Ghana,  the effects of COVID-19 brought it to a halt.

It is in this light that Mr Fianoo welcomes the new season by assuring the football lovers in Ghana that clubs are making efforts to ensure the start of the new season void of unforeseen circumstances.

“On the side of the clubs, i’m very sure all 18 clubs are ready to start the league.  We are all looking forward to November 13 when the referees will blow their whistles”

He also applauded government support so far, by adding that, “it is our hope that they will be with us from the beginning to the end because we want to make football big. The government has show it was concerned about our safety and we hope they will cushion us in every area we need them”, he said.

Most leagues in Africa have already started announcing that start of the new 2020/21 season,  for instance Kenya has set the 20th of November as start date for their new season.

Ahmad Ahmad Runs To CAS For Help

Published

Following a sour five – year ban inflicted on the former president of the Confederation of African Football, Ahmad Ahmad, the Malagasy has opted to report to the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

On November 23, The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee found Ahmad Ahmad, the
President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and a FIFA Vice-President, guilty of having
breached art. 15 (Duty of loyalty), art. 20 (Offering and accepting gifts or other benefits) and art. 25
(Abuse of position) of the 2020 edition of the FIFA Code of Ethics, as well as art. 28
(Misappropriation of funds) of the 2018 edition.

It is for this reason that Ahmad’s entourage came out with a release on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 reading;

Mr. Ahmad Ahmad files an appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Tuesday, November 24, 2020.

Ahmad Ahmad, President of CAF and Vice-President of  FIFA has announced that his board is filing an appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) in order to strongly challenge the conviction of the Chamber of Justice and FIFA  Ethics Commission.
A five-year ban on any football-related activity – at national and international level – as well as a fine of CHF 200,000, was imposed by the FIFA Ethics Commission, Monday, 23 November 2020, against the President of CAF and FIFA Vice-President Ahmad Ahmad.
This decision was impartial. During months of the investigation conducted by
The Chamber of Inquiry of the FIFA Ethics Commission, headed by Maria Claudia Rojas, against the African Confederation of Football.

The latter was also quick to make an urgent decision
without disclosing the reasons for her sentence, despite the case’s seriousness.
The reason for such, perhaps that this conviction would prevent President Ahmad from being re-elected to the
CAF presidency in the elections scheduled for March 2021, despite the many support already declared in his favor. An appeal will therefore be made to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to challenge this
incomprehensible and shocking decision.
The Appeal will also be accompanied by a request for suspensive effect,
not to aggravate the harm suffered by President Ahmad, and to allow him to campaign for re-election as Caf President.
Mr. Ahmad Ahmad’s team thinks that the facts were presented in a largely questionable and
disputable manner.

For example, FIFA’s mandate was given to the audit firm PwC to investigate the administration of  African football, even though this firm had previously worked for  CAF and under the mandate of this, creating a conflict of interest and a problem of obvious lack of impartiality. Also, ongoing rumors of possible FIFA involvement in the work of the  Ethics Commission have consistently resonated in the European and African press. Leaks of information
relating to the current procedure – which is supposed to be strictly confidential – and systematically unfavorable to President Ahmad, have been made public by press, preventing, in fact, the conduct of a serene investigative work.
Even the hearing of President Ahmad, to which was denied the right to present some of his witnesses at a hearing in the no-charge was not held to the expected and usual standards.
It results from these irregularities that the facts were presented in a largely questionable and
a disputable manner, by the FIFA Ethics Committee.
