Eleven Wonders receive immediate home ban after breaching matchday covid-19 protocols in shared spoils against Asante Kotoko

Eleven Wonders fans were happy to see their side avoid a defeat to Asante Kotoko at the Nana Ameyaw Park last Saturday but they have received mixed emotions following GFA punishment on them a day after the game.

Wonders have been banned from playing their home matches at the Ohene Ameyaw Park following their noncompliance of Ghana Football Association (GFA) directive for matches to be played behind closed doors.

The GFA, in consultation with the National COVID-19 Task Force, issued a directive to the clubs for all Ghana Premier League matchday 18 games to be played without fans.

However, Eleven Wonders violated the directive as they allowed fans into Ohene Ameyaw Park for their clash with Asante Kotoko which ended in a 1-1 stalemate after Samuel Boakye cancelled out Brazilian attacker Fabio Gama’s early strike.

In an article published on their website, the GFA indicated the game was billed to admit only 30 club officials but Eleven Wonders FC deliberately admitted full capacity of supporters in violation of GFA Regulations and GFA Approved Matchday COVID-19 Protocols.

Adding that, they feel very scandalised that a Premier League club such as Eleven Wonders FC deliberately put the game into disrepute and the entire fate of football at risk.

The association have taken four actions which include an immediate ban of Eleven Wonders from hosting their games at Ohene Ameyaw Park.

  • The GFA condemns, without any reservations, the violations of the GFA Statutes, Regulations and the GFA’s Playing Football Behind Closed Doors Protocols – Lack of Social Distancing, Number of Spectators etc – that took place at Techiman.
  • That GFA Prosecutor is tasked to immediately charge Eleven Wonders FC, the home club for adjudication at the Disciplinary Committee concerning the various breaches.
  • That until the case is fully determined, Eleven Wonders FC is banned from playing their home matches at the Nana Ohene Ameyaw Park, Techiman. The Competition Department will fix the venue for the upcoming matches of Techiman Eleven Wonders FC.
  • That all other clubs are to take note and comply strictly with the GFA COVID-19 Matchday Protocols.
