At the GFA Extra-Ordinary Congress, 64 of the 120 delegates approved of the decision for Great Olympics and King Faisal to partake in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

The decision means the new league season will have 18 teams instead of the standard 16 which has been the norm for many years.

However, at the end of that 2019/20 campaign, 5 teams would be relegated whereby 3 teams would be promoted from Division One to have the regular of 16 teams for the 2020/2021 campaign.
