The Greater Accra Division Two starts on April 26, a hugely competitive division where all but few clubs will target a top finish and the prospect of promotion to the top-flight.
Among the favourites for the title in the Championship betting are relegated Warriors and Catholic Youth Organisation (CYO). The two clubs with coaches, who have previously won promotion from the Championship, are all capable of a quick return to the elite division.
On paper Warriors, CYO and Dansoman Dynamics have the strongest squad. Dansoman coach Ferrani Olulonyo has added steal to an already experienced side and will be a strong contender this term.
Warriors showed glimpses of showed glimpses of commitment and passion in the latter end of last season and more of the same in the Championship will be welcomed at Lebanon and Aviation Social Centre.
Ferrani has boosted Dynamics ambitions with the acquisition of certain players and with massive backing from the owners of the club, they are well-equipped for a promotion push.
OSK and Rangers may have to juggle league fixtures with a possible promotion on the horizon as he strengthens his squad for the coming season.
Galaxy will need to shake off the disappointment of losing in the play-offs last season, but will be fancied in the Championship betting markets. Fans of basketball bets will note Galaxy were not too impressive but will expect the boys to have a big impact again in the Championship.
OSK will look to their coach for tactical disposition on the court and will be eager to prove their worth against some decent teams in the Championship race.
Teshie Rangers and Adenta Leopards will be popular in the basketball bets and are sure to be there and thereabouts in the challenge for the top places. Having qualified from the third-tier side, both clubs can look forward to some stability as their respective coaches’ plan for their first full season in charge.
Old Skul Kings can stand a chance of promotion if they keep hold of their star men ahead of the Championship next month. They should take inspiration from last season’s performance and adapt to the Championship and their well-regarded coach Austin Arthur.
Air Force and Navy have been here before and will rely on their fine form for points as teams in a battle of promotion.
Many of the budding talents will seek to improve to catch the eye of national team coaches for selection.
