The Ghana FA is set to introduce the Super Cup competition for the Women’s Premier League teams at the end of the 2020/21 season.
The format of the competition will see the top four teams, that is two from each zone compete for the coveted trophy.
The new competition was agreed upon at the Executive Council meeting held on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, in Accra.
In a statement from the Ghana FA, the competition will help meet number of approved matches to be played within a calendar year by FIFA for Women’s football.
Currently, Women’s Premier League clubs in Ghana, play a minimum of fourteen matches during the League season and a maximum of 5 games in the FA Cup, making it 20 across competitions, falling short of the required number of games approved by FIFA.
“The rationale is to give clubs more games outside the League campaign to make them competitive and to add to the limited number of games that are played in the course of the season”.
“The mini-tournament, also aims to give an additional incentive to clubs and players to prepare them for the new season”.
“The Executive Council believes the introduction of super cup will give players of the elite women’s football competition the opportunity to play more games and to develop their careers better”.
