The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has ordered Accra Hearts of Oak to play their home games behind closed doors for breaching the association’s laid down COVID-19 matchday protocols.
The GFA says the Phobians violated the approved matchday COVID-19 protocols without mentioning specifics in their Ghana Premier League week 11 game against Great Olympics on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The club has also been referred to the GFA Disciplinary Committee, and until the case is ruled, hearts will continue to play their home games without fans at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The number of club officials and media persons allowed into the stadium has also been reduced drastically.
