RTU Woes Exacerbate as GFA Slaps With New Charge

Crisis-hit Real Tamale United have found themselves in fresh trouble with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) as they are facing new charges for violating the Disciplinary Code.

The FA is holding the relegation-threatened club responsible for an incident during their game against Bofoakwa Tano on March 4, 2024.

Supporters of the club are said to have threatened and attempted to physically assault match officials ahead of the game at Berekum.

The GFA deems the development failure on the part of the club to protect match officials, a violation of Section 16 of the Disciplinary Code.

“It is alleged that Real Tamale United failed to ensure the safety of Match Officials of the said game and their supporters behaved inappropriately.”

They have until March 11 to file their defence, a notice issued by the FA disseminated.

Bottom-placed RTU are plagued with multiple struggles this season. The club aside from struggling to pay players for several months now, are faced with challenges including a three-game home ban and a Gh₵10,000 fine by the regulatory body of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after misconduct during a match against Medeama SC in the first round.

RTU after their 3-0 defeat to Hearts of Oak on February 25 bounced back to draw against Bofoakwa on Monday. They face the 14th-placed Accra Lions this Sunday.
