The Club Licensing Board of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has revealed that Liberty Professionals will no longer be allowed to use the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park as their home venue for the ongoing Ghana Premier League season.

According to the body, the decision has been taken today following an inspection exercise at the venue on the back of an incident that happened on Sunday afternoon where 3 snakes were killed during a match against Hearts of Oak.

Read a statement from the Club Licensing Board released by the GFA confirming the decision ttoday:

"The Club Licensing Board has revoked the License of Liberty Professionals FC for the use of the Carl Reindorf, Dansoman with immediate effect.

"This decision was taken at a meeting of the Committee held on Monday, January 20 following the Club’s inability to rectify the infrastructural challenges based on which they were granted a provisional license with conditions, failing which the license shall be withdrawn.

"After its inspection on Monday, January 20, the Board observed that Liberty Professionals failed to effect the required changes before the deadline given earlier.

"Liberty Professionals are therefore advised to contact the Competitions Department of the GFA on the choice of an alternative venue from the list of approved Premier League match venues.

"The Club is also advised to reapply for a license to use the Carl Reindorf Park should they correct the defects".
