“The public is hereby informed that the offices of the Ghana Football Association remain closed despite the government’s decision to lift the partial lockdown in the Greater Accra, Greater Kumasi and Kasoa environs,” the GFA announced on its official website on Monday.

“This is because the government’s directive on public gatherings of 25 or more persons is still in force.

“Members of the GFA, including clubs, Regional Football Associations and all stakeholders are being reminded to continue with the use of the online systems of the GFA (email, Registration System – Fifa Connect etc) to communicate with the Secretariat.

“Football clubs are advised to strictly comply with the ban on gathering and sporting activities and are therefore reminded that group training is still not allowed until the ban on social gathering is lifted by the state.”

On March 15, the GFA suspended all its competitions, including the Premier League, and announced the closure of its offices after the government banned public gatherings as part of measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease.
