Having realized that the decision to hold the Extra Ordinary Congress on Wednesday, August 19 has caused a great furore due to it non compliance with the relevant provisions of the Statutes of the Ghana Football Association, the Normalisation Committee of the GFA has rescheduled its Congress date to Thursday, September 5, 2019 without provocation.

Below is a statement from the Normalisation Committee announcing the change of date and the reason behind the change:

The Normalisation Committee of the GFA, in its quest to fully comply with relevant provisions of the Statutes of the GFA without ambiguity, has rescheduled the Extra Ordinay Congress of the GFA from Wednesday August 19 to Thursday September 5, 2019.

The rescheduling clears any ambiguity over interpretation of relevant provisions of the GFA Statutes by stakeholders, regarding the number of days required for Extra Ordinary Congress as well as the agenda for the Extraordinary Congress as earlier communicated.

The rescheduling also offers us the unique opportunity of welcoming to Ghana a FIFA representative as a special guest for this historic Congress.

We are looking forward to welcoming our stakeholders for what is anticipated to be a very successful Congress towards the forward match of Ghana football.

Thank you.
