Sunyani Coronation Park And Theater Of Dreams Face Ban After Executive Committee Meeting Tomorrow?

The Theater of Dreams and Sunyani Coronation Park are on the verge of a ban following the unfortunate incidents recorded ast weekend. An emergency meeting will be held by the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association, tomorrow, after which the two venues may receive their sanction.

Pitch invasion coupled with attacks on match officials have affected the domestic football this season. 

In the Division One League, Zone 1, has recorded acts which resulted in teams been banned from their home grounds. 

After the first round of matches, the Ghana Football Association led by President Kurt Okraku embarked on an engagement exercise to get a first hand information on the grounds, through a meeting with club owners and administrators, securing agencies in various areas and supporters. 

Post this exercise, the hope was to eradicate or reduce hooliganism to its minimum level. 

Second round of matches have witnessed similar incidents, becoming an albatross on the neck of the football governing body in Ghana. 

It appears clubs are yet to come into terms with the extent to which pitch invasion and hooliganism bring the game into irreparable disrepute. Sanctions and cautions issued to teams may have fallen on deaf ears. 

Theater Of Dreams And Sunyani Coronation Park

Last weekend, the two venues churned out events that ruined the sanctity of the game. 

Dreams FC hosted Berekum Chelsea in a Premier League game, after which team official of the away side, Berekum Chelsea was attacked. 

BA United went into action with Real Tamale United, and the game ended abruptly due to fans invading the field in the course of the match. 

These incidents have compelled Ghana Football Association’s Executive Committee to hold an emergency meeting. 

After the meeting tomorrow, both venues could be banned for the remaining games, and will be referred to the Disciplinary Committee. 

Dreams FC and BA United, who were playing at home will have questions to answer before the Disciplinary Committee. 

The two teams face hefty sanction which may include playing home matches away from home. 

The meeting will be a marathon since various measures to curtail hooliganism will be under deliberation. 

The Executive Committee may collaborate with the Ghana Police Service to fish out supporters who were caught on camera during the incidents recorded in Dawau and Sunyani. 

The Executive Committee - could bring out a blue print - that will be deterrent enough to ensure teams and their supporters refrain from replicating same or similar reprehensible conducts across all divisions of the league.
