Breaking news – Fans free to watch Football, Government lifts ban on Close door matches

The Ministry of Youth and Sports, in consultation eith the Ghana Government COVID-19 health authorities have eased restrictions on Football activities to allow for fans to watch matches of the Ghana Premier league.

A statement by the ministry indicates “Ghana has made significant progress in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic” necessitating the new directive.
Football clubs can now have 25% of fans to the various match centers going forward.

Below is the full Statement feom the Ministry

“With respect to football, after due consultations with the Ghana Football Association, it has been decided that the Ghana Premier League and the Division One Football League will restart on Friday, 30th October, with a full regime of testing of the players, technical and management staff. No spectators will be allowed at the training centres, and, when actual competition resumes, seating at all stadia will be limited to twenty-five percent (25%) capacity to ensure social distancing.

“However, before November 2020, there was a spike in the country’s Coronavirus cases. This necessitated the issuance of an administrative directive from the Ministry that the Twenty-Five percent (25%) seating capacity announced earlier should be put on hold and that football matches should be played behind closed doors.

This administrative directive was in consonance with the President’s desire to protect lives and livelihoods.

Ghana has made significant progress in combating the disease of late. Government has therefore eased the restriction of playing behind closed doors. Seating at all stadia will therefore be limited to Twenty-Five (25%) capacity as previously announced by the President. All existing safety and hygiene protocols are still in force.

The Inter-Ministerial Taskforce will continue to monitor the evolving Covid-19 situation and will advise when more spectators will be allowed to all stadia in the country.
