Some Ghana Premier League matches could be played in the mornings in order not to clash with games at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.

The 2017/2018 season starts next January and it does not look like the first round could come to an end before the summer tournament in Russia.

To avoid matches being played simultaneously with World Cup games, Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has suggested the kick off times could change.

”We are going to start our season next year JanuaryFebruary and we hope that it will not clash with the World Cup,” Nyantakyi said during the ExCo summit in Cape Coast

”We may do an accelerated program to finish the first round before the World Cup. The other option is for the PLB to scheduled games that will not clash with the World Cup fixtures.

”We may have our league games probably played in the morning to avoid coinciding with the Mundial fixtures.”
