Hearts of Oak head coach Edward Nii Odoom has expressed his joy over the potential return of the Ghana Premier League on October 30, after the government lifted the ban of contact sports.

President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo announced the easing of these restrictions last Sunday, in his 17th Covid-19 address to the nation.

Football has been on suspension since March 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, leading to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 season.

“We welcome this news from the President, and it is good news to all in the football industry as we can now go ahead with our plans for the new season”, Coach Odoom told Hearts Media.

The Phobians are yet to announce arrangement for the start of the preseason campaign although we are highly informed that a decision is imminent.

“Soon, we will gather the boys together and begin our preseason as we look to prepare very well for the upcoming season which we know will be tough”, he added.
