The Ghana Football Association has “temporarily” banned Asante Kotoko from playing its home games at the Baba Yara Stadium.

This comes following the disturbances caused by supporters of the club on Sunday to protest refereeing decisions in their 0-1 loss to Berekum Chelsea.

The decision stands, “pending the adjudication of the matter by the GFA Disciplinary Committee.”

“Article 14 (2) of the GFA Premier League Regulations states that: ‘the GFA may order the closure of any league centre/venue where the safety of clubs, match officials and/or spectators cannot be guaranteed’," an FA statement said.

“The GFA Prosecutor shall prefer charges against any person/party found to have breached any provision of the GFA Regulations or Disciplinary Code,” it added.

Below is the full statement from the FA:
