CAF fines GFA for Cape Coast pitch invader incident

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has fined Ghana an amount of Ten Thousand US Dollars (US$10,000) for the invasion of the field of play by a fan.

This is in relation to the incident that occurred in the the latter stages of the Black Stars’ win over South Africa in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the Cape Coast Stadium on November 14, 2019.

CAF’s Disciplinary Board fined Ghana US$10,000 for the incident after studying the reports from the match officials.

It will be recalled that 25-year-old Awal Suleman, who sprinted across the pitch, was ordered to pay a fine of GHc2,400 by the Cape Coast Circuit Court for breaching public disturbance laws.

“There is a need for lovers of our national teams to behave appropriately within the laws of game.

This is really important because our actions have consequences for the GFA and the State at large.

We will continue to educate the patrons of the game but there will be mechanisms to ensure that fans who cause the Nation to lose money in this manner are brought to book,” said GFA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo.
