Heart of Lions banned from using Stadium

The GFA Executive Committee has ordered for a temporary ban on Kpando Heart of Lions from using the Kpando Stadium as its home grounds with immediate effect.

The decision was taken after the unfortunate incident where supporters of the club threw objects at Match Officials during and after the Match day 18 game between Hearts of Lions and Bechem United played on 17th June, 2015 at the Kpando Stadium.

The said incident led to injuries to one of the match officials, Assistant referee James Osarfo.

This decision was therefore taken in accordance with Article 15(2) of the GFA General Regulations which states that “the GFA may order the closure of any league centre where the safety of clubs, Match Officials or Spectators cannot be guaranteed”.

The Premier League Board will therefore determine the venue for the Club’s subsequent matches in accordance with the provisions of Article 15(3) of the GFA General Regulations.

Meanwhile, the Disciplinary Committee has been charged to hear the case in accordance with the Regulations of the Association.
