In what can only be described as timely news, finder sports has reported that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is not overly excited about having to postpone some Ghana Premier League (GPL) matches after receiving letter from the National Sports Authority (NSA) about proposed plans to close down the Tamale and Accra stadia for renovation works.
The proposed renovation work will affect fixtures in the Ghana Premier League as these Stadia serve as home venues for the following Ghana Premier League clubs, Hearts of Oak, Olympics, Legon Cities and RTU.
According to the National Sports Authority, the renovation works on the affected stadiums is will commence between December 18 to 26 December. The Ghana Football Association received the letter from the National Sports Authority sometime last week and the renovation works will mean the Football Association will have to find places for the matches to have been played in the affected venues to be played or for the matches to be postponed.
The renovation works will further put strain on the football organisers to find ways and means to prevent fixture congestion and to ensure matches are all played before the end of the season without putting too much physical pressure on teams
