Hooliganism: Ghana FA can only ban stadia - Henry Asante Twum

Published on: 22 June 2021

Henry Asante Twum has revealed that until congress meets to discuss other measures to tackle hooliganism in football, the FA can go in dealing with violence at match venues is to ban the home club.

His comment emerges come after Medeama SC players, team bus and officials were attacked by fans of Karela United on Sunday at the CAM Park during the MTN FA Cup round of 32 match.

The venue has been banned by the country's football governing body following the barbaric incident.

However, the GFA has come under a lot of criticism for failing to do more in punishing individuals who perpetrate violence at match venues.

Henry Asante Twum, who is the Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] speaking in an interview with Starr Sports, said, “The Wamanafo town park has been banned from hosting any Division One League game until the end of time.

“We also banned temporarily the Rawlings Park in Nkoranza and as we speak the CAM park has also been banned and until the end of the season, they will play their home games away from home and that is all the Executive Council can do.

“Until the decision making process changes, until members of the FA go to congress and say let’s be punitive enough by deducting points from clubs whose fans misbehave at league centres, it is what it is things will continue to be like this “ he added.

In April this year, Referee Niatire Suntuo Aziz and his assistants Suleman Mohammed, Yakubu Abdul Rahman as well as the fourth referee Hasim Yakubu were beaten by Wamanafo Mighty Royal home fans after their game with Bofoakwa Tano ended 0-0 at the Wamanafo Community Park.
