The decision by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association to play matches behind closed doors for four weeks has arrived appropriately, considering the manner in which some clubs flout the Match Day COVID-19 protocols. 


There is the need for the entire stakeholders deliberate on the way forward. 

As Ghana continues to battle a surge in COVID-19 cases, the league ought to be properly managed to save the investments made so far. 

Last year around this time, the various local leagues were in full swing until the outbreak of the pandemic in March. Football has to be in the waiting room for months before a green light was given in October. 

The game returned without spectators, but efforts were made by the football governing body to bring back fans into the stadium.

In January 2021, the President, through the Sports Ministry, lifted the ban of spectators. 

In the midst of the spike, the President charged the National Sports Authority and the Ghana Football Association to enforce strict adherence to all the safety protocols across league venues. 

Following that pronouncement, clubs who failed to ensure supporter abide by the safety protocols were made to play behind closed doors. Accra Hearts of Oak, Medeama and Karela United have fallen victim. 

Concerns were still raised as to how clubs could enforce it through the game and at larger venues. 


For the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association to halt fans patronage at all stadia, all clubs must embrace it for their own good. It serves better to play behind closed doors than to have the entire season cancelled due to global pandemic, COVID-19.
