Former Ghana Football Association Vice President George Afriyie has been selected to be part of a committee to discuss the way forward for the establishment of an 18-club National Division One league by the various clubs at the second tier level.
George Afriyie, a losing candidate at the last GFA Presidential elections has been nominated to represent the interest of members of Zone 3 in the Division One league.
Joining him on the list of DOL reps are Bofoakwa Tano’s David Obeng Nyarko who represents Zone 1 while Jojo Duncan, President of Proud United will serve the interest of members from Zone 2.
They will be joined by two persons nominated by the Ghana FA.
The Executive Council of the GFA took a decision last week to form a 5-member committee for the implementation of the transitional provision on the number of participating clubs in the National Division One League.
This 5-member ad-hoc committee would advise the Executive Council on the format, the possible name of the new 18-club Division One League, the phases of the implementation, whether or not a third-tier League will be required and its format.
The current DOL structure has 48 teams housed in 3 zones. The move by the GFA to limit participating to 18 teams, has been fiercely opposed by some club administrators albeit it is inspired by a stipulation in the federation’s approved statutes.
