Kumasi Asante Kotoko will be making a return to their favourite home ground after serving their temporary home ban.The punishment was meted out to Kotoko after the misconduct of their fans during an FCP Premier League match with Kpando Heart of Lions at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.The disciplinary committee of the Ghana FA confirmed on Tuesday that the home ban should cover only two matches.However, Kotoko have already served the ban after playing their last two matches away from home following a directive from the executive committee for a temporary closure of the Baba Yara Stadium to all home games of the Porcupine Warriors.This has paved way for Kotoko to host their arch rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak at the Baba Yara Stadium on June 1.The club has been fined USD 2200 (GHC6000). Meanwhile, team manager, Godwin Ablordey has been given a 10-match ban and a fine of USD2850 (GHC9000).The former club captain was found guilty on two counts after physically assaulting a match official, and insulting all the officials at half time during the home match with Heart of Lions.
