Premier League side, Wa All Stars, and Division One outfit, New Edubiase United are yet to confirm their participation in the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee (NC) Special Competition which kicks off on March 31.

Dr Kofi Amoah, President of the NC, in confirming the absence of the two clubs explained that his outfit was yet to receive an official letter of participation from those clubs.

Addressing the media at the launch of the competition on March 25 in Accra, the President of the NC explained that everything was in place to ensure football returns in the country after 10-month absence following an Anas Aremeyaw Anas' infamous "Number 12" expose which unveiled corruption in football activities in the country.

"We are set to kick start the competition but Wa All Stars and New Edubiase haven't confirmed their participation yet as at the time we are addressing the public.

"We hope to hear from them but if not then we can only wish them the very best in their endeavours," Dr Amoah said.

The competition is set to be in tier one and two with the Premier League clubs set to battle it out in the former while the Division One outfit compete in the latter.

Government is fully sponsoring the cost of the competition which is set to give footballers in the country hope after being inactive for months.
