Ghana Football Association has cautioned all Clubs to hid to President Akufo-Addo’s directive that fans are not allowed during pre-season training sessions.

During his update Number 17 on measures taken against the spread of coronavirus,  President Akufo-Addo lifted the ban on contact sports, paving the way for the resumption of competitive football activities in the country.

The President, however, stated that ''No spectators will be allowed at the training centres, and, when actual competition resumes, seating at all stadia will be limited to twenty-five percent (25%) capacity to ensure social distancing”.

Ahead of the upcoming football season, the GFA is entreating the clubs to comply fully with the President's directive.

The GFA will continue to monitor and failures will be sanctioned. We thank our clubs for a good work done so far generally" said General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, (Esq).
