The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League is set to kick off on 14 November with a top liner between Aduana Stars and Hearts of Oak at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park at Dormaa.
Ghanaian football loving fans are missing domestic football, after the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League which kicked off to a good start was cancelled half way as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic in March.
It would be recalled that the last time the Ghana Premier League had a champion was in the 2017 season and Aduana Stars won the title, so the Dormaa lads are still the title holders of the Ghanaian topflight league ahead of a new season.
The 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League is expected to produce much thrills.
Fans are anxious to watch some of the quality players who have been signed by their idol clubs, especially all eyes will be on Ghana’s top scorer Asamoah Gyan when the league resumes.
