Ghana’s sole representative in this year’s edition of the CAF Champions League, Hearts of Oak have been fined by the Competition committee over the poor state of the Accra Sports Stadium, according to Accra based radio station Angel FM.
The Competition committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has slapped Hearts of Oak with a fine around the region of $5000 after their 2-0 win over Guinean top-flight outfit CI Kamsar.
The Rainbow club were found culpable by the Competition committee over the poor nature of the Accra Sports Stadium pitch. CAF has ushered the Ghanian giants to fix the problem — the bad nature of the pitch — at the Accra Sports Stadium before their game against Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club next month. Goals from Kofi Kordzi and Salim Adams ensured the Phobians a qualification to the next stage of competition with a 2-0 win over CI Kamsar. Hearts of Oak will host Moroccan heavyweights Wydad Athletic Club on October 15th before making a trip to Rabat for the reverse leg tie.
The winner of the two-legged fixture will advance to the group stages of the 2021/22 CAF Champions League.
