The National Sports Authority has written to the government COVID-19 task force to consider reviewing the current 25% capacity arrangement currently in place for football matches in the country.
In January 2021, government granted permission for football stadiums across the country to admit up to 25% capacity, a revision from the ‘no fans’ at stadium directive that came into effect at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, more than a year since the 25% capacity directive, stakeholders have urged government to relax the rule to allow more fans into the stadiums.
Ahead of Sunday’s Super Clash between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko in Accra, the NSA has written to the task force to ask them to scrap the existing arrangement, and instead, introduce, different measures that are equally geared towards controlling the spread of the virus.
Citi Sports has learned the NSA is expected to hear back from the task force before Sunday’s game.
