The 2021/22 Ghana Division One League will kick off in a day with Zone III set to witness an all former Premier League affair in the opener.
Former top flight sides Inter Allies and Liberty Professionals will clash at the Dawu Park in their opening fixture on Sunday afternoon.
Inter Allies finished bottom of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League on 26 points with Liberty managing 40 points and missing survival by the head-to-head rule.
The two sides go head-on in a battle fit for the gods at the Dawu Park which has been adopted by the Capelli Boys.
Liberty Professionals defender, Paul Kwame has talked to Africa-foot.com about the opening game of the season.
“It’s all Premier League affair in week one and I think it’s going to be a tough game.
“Because obviously I watched them [Inter Allies] at Ajiringanor last time in a friendly match and most of the players we played against [last season], are not there, just a few.
“They are new players but they are still a good side no matter what because they promoted some of their young team into the senior side.
“So it’s going to be a tough game in week one playing Inter Allies away, it’s going to be a tough game for us but I think we are prepared for that because you know that sometimes you have to be ready for anything that comes your way.
“So we are prepared and it’s going to be the same feeling like playing against the opponent you played in the Premier League.
“It’s still going to be tough so the feeling is good, very exciting and I know it’s going to be competitive like it was in the Premier League,” Paul Kwame told Africa-foot.com.
“Preparations for Liberty Professionals, yes, we are prepared well and we have had a new coach who is trying to implement his style of play and I think we are catching up with it.
“The friendly games you could see it coming so I know maybe from week three going, I think we are going to see more of the style because we’ve been working hard in training both physically and mentally.
“ we know the task ahead so I think we are well prepared and we need to stay focus and just keep doing what we have to do, work hard everyday and put in the effort we have to and I know we are well prepared and we will do a good job.” Paul Kwame told Africa-foot.com.
Inter Allies have made their intentions clear of staying a bit longer in the second tier to put their house in order before venturing a return to top flight football.
Liberty Professionals on the other hand will eye a quick return to the Premier League where they spent decades before the drop to Division One.
