Aduana Weighs Options In Park Ban

Aduana Football Club is weighing its options in the FA’s decision in banning it from hosting home matches at the Nana Agyemang Badu I Park.

In an interview, the Club said it was studying the issue for the next line of action.

After Aduana FC thrashed Tamale City by a goal to nil at home on Sunday, April 1, alleged supporters of the former attacked the bus of the latter around the park, according to reports.

According to the head coach of Tamale City, Hamza Mohammed, the attackers pelted stones at his team while on their bus.

The case has been taken up by the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA but in the meantime, the Executive Council of the FA has banned Aduana from hosting its home matches at the Nana Agyemang Badu I Park where the attack took place.

The ban will be temporal.

“This decision has become necessary due to the unfortunate incidents that occurred after the Matchday 25 between Aduana FC and Tamale City FC (outside the park) played on April 2, 2023”, the FA said.

It noted that the decision is in accordance with the GFA Premier League Regulations Article 14(2) which states inter alia “the GFA may order the closure of any league centre where the safety of clubs, Match Officials or Spectators cannot be guaranteed”.

Reacting to the development in an interview, Public Relations Officer, Evans Oppong, said the Club was studying the case with its lawyers for the next line of action.

The club holds that the attack took place outside the park and does not qualify to be put in the remit of Article 14(2).

“How can you ban a club for an action that was done outside the stadium? As a club, our legal team is studying the matter for us to know the next action we are going to take. So far as we are concerned, there could be a lot of action that we take. One of them is to boycott the league or drop from the league”, he said according to 3 Sports.
