The Ghana Football Association(GFA) last night announced that it has rescheduled the start date for the 2nd round of the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season.
The 2nd round was scheduled to begin on Friday, March 19, but it has been moved to a latter date, with the GFA citing that the Black Star need more time to prepare for their games against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in the remaining games for the AFCON qualifiers.
With the pandemic still ongoing and a lot of travel restrictions in place, the FA decided to invite several local players to represent the country for the remaining games.
The game against South Africa is set to be played on March 25, 2021 while the other is set to be played three days later, prompting the change of the date for the restart.
The 2nd round will now start on Friday, April 2, 2021.
