The Ghana Football Association has temporarily banned Asante Kotoko Sporting Club from playing their home matches at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium following the post-match violence that occurred there on Sunday, ABC News can report.

The violence erupted after some fans, unsatisfied with the outcome of a referring decision, attacked match officials after their 0-1 defeat to Berekum Chelsea in the Ghana Premier League Week 3 encounter on Sunday.

One fan, a Kotoko supporter, has been admitted at the Emergency Unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after a police officer, shot him twice in his jaw, once in the right eye and beneath the teeth.

The ruling was taken on Monday by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association after they decided to trigger the provision of Article 14(2) of the regulations.

According to the Ghana Football Association regulations, if a league venue where the safety of clubs, match officials and/or spectators cannot be guaranteed, the GFA will decide to hold the venue temporarily.

This means the Porcupine Warriors would be given another venue to play their home matches in subsequent games until the ban is lifted.

Asante Kotoko will travel to Tarkwa to face Medeama SC in their next fixture on match-day four.
