DIVISION ONE LEAGUE

The Premier League Board has released a statement to postpone Ghana Premier League matches for one month. The break is to pave way for Black Stars B qualifiers in the Championship of African Nations(CHAN), MTN FA Cup games as well as certain piled outstanding games in the Ghana Premier League.

The decision came in the wake of Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s accident which has seen them pile games against rivals Accra Hearts of Oak and WAFA.
