Aduana Stars Incident Highlights Need for Improved Security Measures in Ghana Football


The Ghana Premier League is no stranger to controversy, and the latest incident involving Aduana Stars Football Club has only added fuel to the fire. The club’s Greater Accra Regional Representative, Isaac Koomson, has dismissed claims that granting free entry to fans during their recent match against Tamale City increased the level of risk at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park.

The game, which ended in a 1-0 victory for Aduana Stars, was marred by reports of an attack on Tamale City’s bus allegedly by some fans of Aduana United. Tamale City player Isaac Mensah was allegedly struck by a stone during the incident.

In an interview with Citi Sports, Koomson stated that the alleged incident took place outside the vicinity of the stadium and that his team should not be blamed for the incident. He also apologized for the incident but stated that the free entry for fans did not increase the risk of such an incident happening.

Koomson said, “No, I didn’t think so because at this time the people were going to come to the stadium. When you are winning matches and you are leading the league, definitely supporters will come. They are going to come anyway. Everything that happened never happened at the stadium. When the bus got out of the stadium, then they started throwing stones at the blindside of the management”.

Despite Koomson’s statements, Aduana Stars has since been temporarily banned from playing home games at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park by the Ghana Football Association while investigations are conducted.

This incident once again highlights the need for security measures to be put in place during football matches in Ghana. While the issue of fan violence is not unique to Ghana, it is crucial for clubs and the Ghana Football Association to take steps to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.

Football is a beloved sport in Ghana, and incidents like these not only tarnish the image of the game but also put the safety of players, officials, and fans at risk. It is essential that all stakeholders work together to ensure that football matches in Ghana are played in a safe and secure environment.
