RLFG TO RESUME TRAINING

The Rugby League Federation Ghana (RLFG), following President Nana Akufo-Addo’s decision to lift the ban on contact sports on 20th September, 2020 will resume its sporting activities after deliberations with its members.

All sports including Rugby League were suspended back in mid-March 2020 as part of the government’s measures to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and for the last 6 months the RLFG used the ongoing pandemic to better itself through training and promotion (through both traditional and social media), making a name for itself globally.

The RLFG on 24th September, 2020 held a meeting on Zoom at 6PM (GMT) with Club Managers and Executives of the federation to discuss the comeback of activities and the way forward amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Members had to vote on two options; (1) For clubs to train from October to November 2020 and play participate in a friendly event in December 2020 or (2) For clubs to train for rest of the year, play training matches and start all over in 2021.

After several deliberations the first option was selected, meaning clubs will begin training from October to November 2020 with a friendly event to kick off in December 2020.

As part of these developments, the federation is set to resume training on the 8th October, 2020. Clubs and the female Rugby League team have also announced their training schedules.
