AshantiGold risk hosting Asante Kotoko on a neutral ground

Posted by

AshantiGold may be forced to play their remaining home games of the 2021/22 Premier League season on a neutral ground, including the outstanding Gameweek 29 league fixture against Asante Kotoko.

Following the Miners’ demotion to the Division Two league for involvement in match fixing, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) postponed the club’s Gameweek 29 clash against Asante Kotoko upon the advice of the Municipal Police Commander of Obuasi, DSP Martin Assenso.

The game was postponed due to unrest birthed by the demotion of the club to the Division Two League.

In a statement released by the FA on its website on Monday, the FA announced that the postponed game will be played at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Thursday, June 2.

However, should the security situation at the ground not improve, the Miners will be forced to play their remaining home games at their alternative ground, which is the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The statement read: “The Ghana Premier League Matchweek 29 outstanding match between AshantigGold SC and Asante Kotoko SC has been scheduled for Thursday, June 2, 2022.

“The match is scheduled to be played at the Len Clay Stadium, Obuasi and will kick off at 3pm.

“Stakeholders are kindly informed to take note accordingly.

“It must be noted, however, that should the security risk and the advice from the Security Services remain unchanged by the next home match of AshantiGold SC, the Association reserves the right to shift the home matches of AshantiGold SC to an alternative match venue,” the statement ended.
