Wednesday 21st February , 2018 4:16 pm

The Ghana Football Association has confirmed that the weekend of March 2-4, 2018 will see the start of the Ghana Premier League season.

The decision was taken at the Association’s Ordinary Congress on Thursday.

The congress was finally held after a High Court in Accra dismissed the application of an interlocutory injunction which was being sought by Accra Great Olympics.

Olympics wanted to put a hold on the start of the league citing an unresolved case of the use of unqualified players in  match between Bechem United Elmina Sharks.

The case was first heard on February 14 but was adjourned to February 21.

The GFA also announced at the Congress that the Division One would also start on the same weekend at the Ghana Premier League.

The Association added that it would pay a large part of officiating fees for Division One clubs ahead of the start of the season.

The FA would pay GHS 25, 800 while the clubs footing GHS 3,000.
