The Communication Director of Hearts of Oak, Opare Addo says the Phobians will file a formal appeal against the Ghana Football Association’s decision to ban the club in the coming days.
Hearts has been ordered to play their home matches behind closed doors and go freely without a fine.
This was after breaking coronavirus safety protocols during Saturday’s 2-0 derby defeat to Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League.
The Phobians were handed this punishment last week after they were found guilty of failure to control their fans in a premier league game with Great Olympics.
However, Opare who describes the punishments as too harsh has disclosed that they will put in an appeal in the coming weeks.
In an interview on the Sports Coffee show on OMY Tv, Opare said “they have decided to appeal against the decision so we have few days to put in the appeal and that is what we are working towards”.
“It’s a harsh decision but I expect the playing body not to be down ahead of midweek’s game because these are board room issues and so we will deal with it at the management level.” Opare told OMY Tv.
Hearts will trek to Tarkwa to face Medeama in a match week 12 fixture at the Akoon park.
