On the 19th anniversary of the tragic incident of 9th May, 2001, when 127 fans lost their lives after a Hearts-Kotoko league match, Management has charged our supporters and football enthusiasts to exhibit good behaviour at match venues.
Management said it was imperative to support efforts by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the security agencies to stem the tide of violence, maintaining that, that which seeks to tarnish the reputation of our football must be eschewed.
This was contained in a press release dated 9th May, 2020 and signed by Public Relations Officer, Kennedy Ansah Boakye. Management sympathised with families of the 127 victims and all who were hurt by the unfortunate incident.
“We must not be deterred by anything to deal with violence and that which brings the name of the beautiful game into disrepute. We stand to lose if we do not support efforts by the football association and security agencies to contain hooliganism in Ghana football.
“Today, we once again, commiserate families of the victims. We say, never again should our football be taken through the tragedy of 2001. Never again. We may not be playing football in view of the suspension caused by the Coronavirus pandemic but then we entreat football lovers in the country to always put up good behaviour at match venues.”
