Tamale Stadium handed indefinite ban after RTU fans’ brutal attack on referee

The Ghana Football Association has issued an indefinite ban on Real Tamale United’s use of the Tamale Sports Stadium for any football competition.

The decision after video footage emerged of RTU fans storming the inner perimeter of the stadium to beat up match officials following their 1-1 draw with Aduana Stars in a GPL game last weekend.


The incident sparked outrage on social media, and the GFA have moved to quickly remove the venue from hosting RTU’s games, describing the incident as “an attack against the entire sport, it being unwarranted and criminal”.

A statement signed by the association’s General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo, said the decision was taken by the GFA’s Executive Council, which exercised its powers under article 14 (2) of the Premier League Regulations (2019).


The matter has subsequently been referred to the GFA Prosecutors to prefer the appropriate charges and the Disciplinary Committee to sit on the matter.
