Ghana Premier League fans to watch games at stadia with Covid-19 vaccination card
Ghana’s special advisor on health at the presidency, Dr Anthony Nsiah-Asare, has disclosed only fans with Covid-19 cards will be allowed to watch the games at the various centres.
The 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season kick off this Friday night with debutant Accra Lions hosting Elmina Sharks at the Accra Sports Stadium as the first game of the season then continuing with fixtures at the various stadia this weekend.
Dr Nsiah, in an interview, said the government and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) are putting in place measures to lift the ban on allowing supporters into the stadiums on matchday.
According to him, it is likely only those who have been vaccinated will be allowed entry in order to stop the spread of the disease.
“So far as the COVID-19 cases aren’t rising at an alarming rate in-country right now doesn’t mean we should allow more people to go to the stadiums when the season starts,” Dr Nsiah told Angel FM.
“We have only 4.1% vaccinated people in the country and it’s most likely that fans will go to the stadium with their Vaccination cards,” he added.
