The testing of players, coaching staff and officials of the 18 Premier League Clubs for COVID-19 will begin on Thursday, 22 October 2020.

This is part of preparations toward the 2020/2021 football season that is expected to commence on 13 November 2020.

The first club to undergo the test is Dawu-based Dreams FC.

All registered players of the clubs, coaching staff and officials will undergo the test for the purpose of competition integrity, fairness and transparency.

The GFA, in a statement, said it is also working hard to put forward measures to ensure that games are played under strict COVID-19 protocols for a successful 2020/2021 season.
