The Ghana Football Association [GFA] is all, but ready to meet the Chief Executive Officers of the eighteen Premier League Clubs today to resolve the sudden impasse that has arisen between the football governing body and Asante Kotoko.

The GFA and Asante Kotoko were on each others throat, engaging in war of words after the FA denied the Porcupine Warriors the opportunity to film their matchday 1 game against Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The FA claimed filming of matches is illegal and a breach against the contractual agreement with StarTimes [broadcast right holders of the Ghana Premier League].

This explanation by the FA did not sit down well with Kotoko who described the move as absurd, primitive, and backward approach to the development of football.

Meanwhile, after back-to-back war of words, the FA seized fire and reminded the Porcupine Warriors that the reliefs they are seeking for is part of the agenda on their scheduled meeting with the CEO’s of the 18-league competition today at the secretariat of the Ghana Football Association at 2:00pm today.

“It is with the greatest of humility that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) write to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated today, November 19, 2020,” a letter signed by General Secretary – Prosper Harrison Addo and addressed to Kotoko on Friday read.

“The subject matter of your letter is part of the key issues to be discussed at the meeting scheduled by the GFA with all the Chief Executive Officers of Premier League clubs on Monday, November 23, 2020, at 2pm,” it added.
