Asante Kotoko slapped with GHc5000 fine; Asked to provide board of directors or risk losing club license

Published on: 04 March 2020

Ghana Premier League giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko risks losing its football licensing after failing to provide it's board of directors to the Club Licensing Board of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

According to information reaching, the management of the Porcupine Warriors are yet to submit names of persons that constitute it's board.

The action which is a requirement by the Club Licensing Board is a way the Ghana FA is looking to ensure the right things are done to promote and develop football in the country.

According to a report from Kumasi-based Oyerapa FM, Asante Kotoko earlier this week received a letter from the GFA asking for the side to submit names of their board.

In a reply, the reds asked the GFA to give them time to put things together.

In a latest development, the Club licensing board in a response has described it as frivolous and that they can't accede to the reasons the former Ghanaian champions are giving them.

In line with that, the club licensing board is said to have fined Asante Kotoko GHc5000 and given them an ultimatum to furnish them with their ownership structure by 3rd April 2020 or their license will be revoked.

Reports coming in  also indicate that an additional fine of GHc20000 could be imposed on the Ghana Premier League record holders.
