This special task committee will advise the GFA on the autonomy of the league, the format, the modalities, start date and rulebook, among other parameters.
The Ghana Premier League is currently organized and managed by the GFA. The 18-club league competition is managed by the Premier League Committee chaired by Lepowura Alhaji M.N.D Jawula with day-to-day administrative support from the Competitions Department of the GFA.
