Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Henry Asante Twum has cast doubts of the possible cancelation of the Ghana Premier League 2019-20 season after the massive financial injections from his outfit and it's partners.

The league together with other sporting disciplines and public gatherings were put on hold amid a Presidential directive in the wake of the deadly coronavirus outbreak far back as March 15.

Since then, the country has recorded unprecedented figures of over 10, 000's in its fight against the virus prompting wide calls from some stakeholders of the league for it's immediate cancellation but that hasn't happened as yet.

According to Mr. Twum, it will be drastic to annul the league without taking into consideration the massive financial investment that has been made by the Football Association, its partners (StarTimes and Nasco) and others running to over $1 million dollars without extensive discussions with them.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Silver FM, Henry Twum has said the league will continue in the near future.

"StarTimes covered 28 matches before the league suspension, they spend $4,000 in production, if you add these together, it will amount to $200,000."

"Our other partners Nasco, gives 43° inch television to coaches as well as phones to the best players for the month, when you quantify them its $150,000”

"I'm saying these people have spent on the league, including the GFA, when you take a decision without consulting them, because of Covid-19, what happens to the relationship with StarTimes, Nasco and other partners”

"The only thing you can keep doing is continue engaging government and your sponsors, when it gets to a stage where it's virtually not possible to continue the league, then you come to clubs and say based on consultation, financial analysis, engineering other engagement, we can't continue with the league".
