Ghanaian football fans were allowed to return to the various stadia in the ongoing football season last week.
Football fans have been barred from attending match venues since March last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The various venues were allowed to admit 25 percent of fans with strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols, a statement from Ghana’s Sports Ministry indicated.
Football activities were supposed to resume together with fans’ attendance at the various stadia in October last year.
A rise in COVID-19 cases in October saw the government revert its decision on the return of fans amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the West African country.
The move by the government to allow fans back into the stadium was much appreciated by the clubs as they continue to incur a lot of costs as a result of games played behind closed doors.
The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League which is currently ongoing has been played under closed doors with some clubs flouting the rules to allow fans into the stadia.
Speaking to Kumasi based Kumasi Fm, Dr. Adam Baba said, he won’t be surprised if government rescind its decision to allow supporters to our various stadia because clubs are not adhering to the basic principles.
“A monitoring team has gone round and clubs are not complying to the Covid-19 protocols” he added.
”The only option that’s applicable is reverting back to the empty stadium than halting football again” Dr. Adam Baba concluded.
