Following the violence meted out to the players of Tamale City after their league game against Aduana Stars, the Ghana Football Association has temporarily banned the use of the Aduana Stars’ home venue.

The ban means that the Nana Agyemang Badu I Stadium cannot be used by the Dormaa-based Ghana premier league side for their home matches until otherwise determined by the GFA.

Aduana Stars who are currently leading the premier league extended their lead by securing a 1-0 win over Tamale City after scoring a spot kick at the extra time of the game.

After the game, fans of the home side allegedly attacked the players of Tamale City throwing objects at their vehicle hence damaging parts of the bus and injuring some of the players in the process.

Videos and photos of the unfortunate incident have since flooded social media showing some players injured and the team bus damaged.

In view of the incident, the GFA has temporarily banned the home venue of the league leaders until further notice.

The ban is in accordance with Article 14(2) of the GFA Premier League Regulations, which allows for the closure of any league center where the safety of clubs, match officials or spectators cannot be guaranteed.

“This decision has become necessary due to the unfortunate incidents that occurred after the Match day 25 between Aduana FC and Tamale City FC (outside the stadium) played on April 2, 2023,” said the GFA on Monday. “The Competitions Department is therefore advised to determine the venue for the Club’s subsequent home matches in accordance with Article 14(3) Premier League Regulations,” parts of the GFA statement read.
