The Ghana Football Association has decided to temporarily ban Elmina Sharks from using the Nduom Sports Stadium following last Sunday’s assault incident on the referee after the game, Happy Sports can confirm.
Some fans of Elmina Sharks fans stormed the field to attack referee Eric Owusu Bempah following Medeama’s 2-1 victory in the Ghana Premier League.
The fans believe the referee caused their defeat, hence decided to beat him up. Fortunately, there were some security men available to prevent a bloody situation.
The Ghana Football Association Communication Director, Henry Asante Twum in an interview with Happy 98.9FM disclosed that the FA is taking a decision to close down the venue temporarily.
The case will later be referred immediately to the Discplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association for immediate sanctions.
Elmina Sharks will have to relocate to a new venue for their games ahead of the impending ban from the Football Association.
