“But one of the key requirements wi be for all of us to ensure that we are vaccinated to be able to access football.
“What that means is that, all our players and staff will be vaccinated [that has already started]. And all football fans who will want to access games at our various stadia must prove that they have received vaccination”, the GFA President added.
The Ghana Premier League will kick off on Friday, 29th October 2021 with the opening game between newly promoted side Accra Lions and Elmina Sharks at the Accra Stadium.
