The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has indicated that the 2017-18 Ghana Premier League will be preceded by a gala competition.

The Gala will be an invitational tournament for clubs in the Premier and Division One Leagues.

Clubs will be asked to write to the GFA to express interest in participating in the 16-team tournament which will be held in Cape Coast from 3 to 4 February 2018.

The tournament will serve as pre season exercise for the Premier clubs as well as the Division One clubs ahead of the start of the new season.
