Ghana Premier League: Fans to return to stadiums as gov’t eases more restrictions

The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) says at part of easing of restrictions imposed as a result of the covid-19 outbreak, fans will be allowed back in stadiums.

Public gatherings were barred in March last year after Ghana recorded its first two cases of the coronavirus outbreak. The aim of this was to prevent community spread of the virus. 

The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) in a press release issued today said seating at all stadiums will be limited to 25% capacity.

“Ghana has made significant progress in combating the disease of late. Government has therefore eased the restriction of playing behind closed doors,” the release said.

“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.

“The Ministry of Youth and Sports is grateful to all stakeholders, particularly the Ghana Football Association for their cooperation”.
