GFA Disciplinary Committee Lift Ban On Golden City Park; Slapped With GHc1,000 Fine

The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana FA have lifted the temporary home ground ban lifted on Berekum Chelsea but the club have been fined GHc 1,000 for the violence that broke out before their match against Asante Kotoko last month.

The Disciplinary Committee swiftly closed down the Golden City Park after gunshots were fired before kickoff and two Kotoko officials beaten up mercilessly.

The ruling read: ''In respect of the charge of hostile and violent behaviour by supporters of the club towards the Away team, the club is found not guilty.

''The Disciplinary Committee rather finds as a matter of fact that the behaviour characterized as hostile and violent was largely intended to disarm Mr Yaw Amo Sarpong, an official of Asante Kotoko who pulled a gun and opened fire shooting several times.

''Consequently and pursuant to Article 38.1 (a) of the GFA General regulations, the temporary ban on Berekum Chelsea team from using the Golden City Park for its home matches is revoked.''

However, the club have been for ''failing to adhere to the Referee's instructions pursuant to Article 23.1 a (x) to match onto the field for the commencement of the match. Article 23.1 a (x) stipulates that ''Unless otherwise directed by the GFA... Entry of the teams onto the pitch- 8mins''
