Confederation Of African Football Caf


The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has fined Ghana Ten Thousand Dollars (US$10,000) for the invasion of the field of play by a football fan, during an Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualifier between the Black Stars and South Africa.

A football fan during the latter stages of the Black Stars’ win over South Africa in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers at the Cape Coast Stadium on November 14, 2019 ran onto the pitch and halted play for some few minutes.

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

It would be recalled that 25-year-old Awal Suleman, who run across the pitch, was fined 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 would 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 General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
