Tamale City attacked at Dormaa, Ghana FA responds by banning Aduana FC from NAB I Park

Tamale City have raised allegations of physical assault from fans of Aduana after Sunday’s Ghana Premier League game at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park.

Players and officials of the Northern Region club say they were attacked by fans of Aduana FC in Dormaa after losing 1-0 in additional time in the match-week 25 fixtures.

The Ogya Boys scored a 90+10 minute penalty to emerge 1-0 winners to maintain their lead and extend their points to 44,  three ahead of second-placed Bechem United.

Shortly after the defeat, videos of Tamale City’s damaged team bus surfaced on social media with bandages wrapped around the head of a player.

Tamale City coach, Hamza Mohammed, later spoke to 3Sports, confirming the attacks from the spectators.

“Our bus is destroyed. Aduana FC fans were throwing stones at us and our players have been terrified by the actions.”

As a result, the Ghana Football Association has temporarily banned Aduana from using the Nana Agyeman Badu I Park after Sunday’s incident.

A statement on the FA website said the decision to ban Aduana FC from using the stadium is based on Article 14(2) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.

The article 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 Competitions Department has been advised to determine a new venue for the club’s subsequent home matches in accordance with Article 14(3) of the Premier League Regulations.

The Ghana FA continued by stating that the matter will be dealt with at the Disciplinary Committee level for a final decision.
