The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has appointed Togbe Afede XIV as Chairman of the Autonomous Premier League Advisory Committee.
Togbe Afede XIV’s appointment follows an earlier decision by the Executive Council, to nominate Dr. Toni Aubynn and Dr. Kwame Baah-Nuakoh, Chairman of the Club Licensing Board, as members of the Committee.
Meanwhile, Premier League clubs have already named their representatives; Delali Senaya, CEO of Inter Allies Football Club, Mr. John Ansah, Operations Manager of Cape Coast Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs Football Club and Togbe Afede XIV, Board Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club.
The Executive Council’s nominees and the representatives from the Premier League clubs will team up to begin the process leading to the Ghana Premier League going autonomous.
On May 8, 2020, the GFA’s Executive Council announced plans to constitute a committee to draw a blueprint for the establishment of an autonomous Ghana Premier League.
It is in view of this that the above appointments have been made.
The Committee is expected to present its first draft to the Executive Council within the first three months of work.
Presently, the eighteen-club Ghana Premier League is organized and managed by the GFA.
