2019/20 GPL: Five In the Capital, Zero In Northern Ghana-The Season Of Derbies

The return of local football to Ghana after a 16-month hiatus was expected to generate national interest and jubilation across the length and breadth of the country with topflight representation to match.

The 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season will however be centered in 8 of the 16 regions with no single club in the entire northern belt of the country. The exit of Wa All Stars FC from the Wa Malik Jabir Park detached upper west region from the football map and boosted Greater Accra’s share of the national cake.
