Posted by

The Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Prof. Peter Twumasi has divulged that clubs can now admit supporters to full capacity of their respective grounds.

Due to Covid-19 that brought the 2019/20 Ghana football season to an abrupt end, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) under the command of the Ghana Health Service/COVID-19 Taskforce in January 2021 announced that clubs can admit only 25% capacity of fans at their respective grounds.

Following the decrease in the spread of the virus, NSA has announced that clubs can now admit supporters to full capacity of their grounds. However, all clubs are expected to adhere to all Covid-19 protocols.

“Henceforth, all stadia across the country can admit spectators to full capacity but the Covid-19 safety protocols must be adhered to,” NSA Director General, Prof. Peter Twumasi announced in an interview with Luv FM.

The directive took effect over the weekend when Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko faced off in the outstanding gameweek 7 Premier League clash.
