The Ghana Premier League is the top professional football division of the football league system in Ghana. Formed officially in 1956, after the last Gold Coast Club Competition was held in 1953/1954, the league is organized by the Ghana Football Association and was ranked as the 11th best league in Africa by the IFFHS from 2001-2010,[1] and the league was also ranked 65th in the IFFHS' Best Leagues of the World ranking, in the 1st Decade of the 21st Century (2001-2010).[2] On 4 February 2014.[3][4][5][6] It has been dominated by Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak. The league has had a hiatus since mid June because of some city corruption issues but its due to return in October.
