The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has approved the recommendations of the 18 Premier League clubs and the Autonomous Premier League Implementation Committee for the full implementation of the autonomous league in the 2023/24 season.
The Ghana Premier League Clubs recommended that the start of the full implementation of the autonomous league should be postponed to the 2023/2024 season to ensure that there is ample time to educate all stakeholders on the Rules Book and also get full engagement with them on all the pertinent changes.
The Ghana Football Association will continue to manage and organize the Premier League for one more season with some more involvement of clubs until it goes fully autonomous in the 2023/24 season.
The Autonomous Premier League Committee comprises Executive Council member Dr. Toni Aubynn (Vice Chairman, Legal Practitioner, and Broadcaster), Willie Alhassanie (Esq.), Dr. Kwame Baah-Nuakoh (Chairman of the Club Licensing Board), Prosper Harrison Addo (Esq.) (General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association) and Emmanuel Dasoberi (Administrative Manager of Asante Kotoko) will initiate the processes for the autonomous Premier League this season. Processes such as registration of the League Company, approval of the Rules Book, licensing standards, education seminars, and change management strategies will be undertaken this season in preparation for the full implementation in the 2023/24 season.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko was the 2021/2022 Ghana Premier League Champions.
