Women’s Premier League severely hit by Coronavirus

Covid 19 has seriously disrupted the 2019/20 Women’s Premier League, according to chairperson madam Hilary Boaten.

The league had to be suspended after the first round of matches due to the outbreak of the deadly disease.

“In the women’s football, we had finish the first round before the covid 19. We even met as a committee to agree on the resumption of the second round on April 4 before the ban on social gathering was declared,” she told NBSports.

“Women’s football could have ended around early June or so if not the pandemic. We were actually about having a good season in the women’s league, there are those who believes the season should be cancelled.

”There are people who also think the season should be allowed to see the end of time, but I think at this moment, we are at a point where dialogue is key.”

Boaten wants all stakeholders to involved in deciding on the resumption or cancellation of the but adds the Ghana FA has the final say on the matter.

She added: “Speaking to everyone who matter in the game is very important, but as it is, the ultimate decision will lie on the FA to make, but I know the FA will come up with a good decision.

“We were all hoping if not for the pandemic, by this time we would be coming to the end of the season to know who the winner is and those who will go on a relegation, but the covid 19 has changed the fate of everything.

”We ought to also consider the country like Germany who have resumed the Bundesliga as we all saw it went on well, I believe if we decide to continue the league, there must be some applications of certain laws from FIFA or countries or associations who have thoughts to resume their respective leagues.”
