Hooliganism Taking The Shine Away From Special Competition – GHALCA Boss

Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Mr Kudjoe Fianoo has stressed that the hooliganism being experienced at some match venues of the ongoing Normalization Committee (NC) Special Competition is taking away its shine.

Midway through the competition, hooliganism and death threats seem to be the main point of conversation after every match week with the recent ones being the cases of the incident that happened at Dormaa when Aduana hosted Medeama SC as well the one at the Golden City Park when Berekum Chelsea played Asante Kotoko.

Speaking in an interview with Joy FM on the sideline of a GHALCA meeting yesterday, Kudjoe Fianoo shared that even though the special competition has been successful so far, the violence at some match venues has taken away the bigger chunk of the good side of the competition.

“The unfortunate scenes that we are recording from some of the venues, vis-à-vis hooliganism, I have been the first to say that it (the Special Competition) has been good but the hooliganism is taking away the bigger chunk of the good side of the competition”.

“So something will have to be done as quickly as possible to bring normalcy. As chairman of GHALCA, I will plead with the clubs that let's do what is normal. Let’s accept defeat in good faith and let’s respect each other”, Mr Fianoo said.

Meanwhile, the disciplinary committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to begin sitting on the incidence at Berekum that left two officials of Kotoko bleeding leading to the temporal closure of the Golden City Park.
