The Ghana football Association (GFA) Executive Council has banned Kumasi-based club Asante Kotoko temporarily from playing its home league matches just after 3 games played in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

This decision was made following an incident caused by the supporters of the club on Sunday January 12 to protest refereeing decisions in their 0-1 loss to Berekum Chelsea.

The decision stands, “pending the adjudication of the matter by the GFA Disciplinary Committee.”

On Monday, January 13, 2020, the GFA Executive Council decided to trigger the provision of Article 14(2) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.

Article 14 (2) of the GFA Premier League Regulations states that: “the GFA may order the closure of any league centre/venue where the safety of clubs, match officials and/or spectators cannot be guaranteed.”

The GFA Prosecutor shall prefer charges against any person/party found to have breached any provision of the GFA Regulations or Disciplinary Code.

Sunday’s incident at the Baba Yara Stadium

Fans of the Porcupine Warriors threw water bottles and sachets onto the field in protest of a red card to defender, Empem Dacosta.

The referee’s decision did not go down well with the home fans who believed the incident – leading to the defender being sent off – was between Kwame Adom, a different Kotoko player and an opposition player.

After the game, the referee was escorted out amid heavy security.
