Great Olympics

The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association has charged Accra Great Olympics on three counts of misconducts for allegedly breaching the GFA Matchday Covid-19 protocols and the GFA Disciplinary Code in their Ghana Premier League match against Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium over the weekend.

The club is being charged for failing to comply with the existing Matchday COVID 19 protocols put in place by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Government of Ghana by allowing a large number of supporters into the stadium which exceed the allocated number to be admitted and for failing to ensure social distancing and the wearing of nose masks.

Olympics have also been charged for failing to implement existing safety rules and regulations in and around the stadium by failing to ensure social distancing, wearing of nose masks in the stadium and washing of hands at various entry points of the stadium.

Chief Executive Officer of the club, Oloboi Commodore has also been charged on two counts of misconducts for comments he made in a radio interview.

Oloboi Commodore in reference to Accra Hearts of Oak allegedly stated in an interview on Happy 98.9FM that ‘if not for dubious officiating they wouldn’t be where they are now’,

The comment is deemed to  be an offensive statement which in the opinion of the Association, is ungentlemanly and likely to bring the game into disrepute.

The Club, as well as the CEO is expected to submit their Statement of defence or appear in person before the GFA Disciplinary Committee.
