The Ghana Football Association’s request for fans to attend Black Stars’ FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Zimbabwe has been approved.
“Through the hard work and negotiating prowess of the Ghana Football Association, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA have approved Ghana’s request to admit spectators for Saturday’s Group G FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifier against Zimbabwe,” the GFA announced on Thursday.
“CAF has approved Four Thousand (4,000) spectators for the match – an improvement over the 2,250 spectators which was approved for last month’s opener against Ethiopia.”
“Per this directive, the Safety and Security Officer of the GFA, Julius Ben Emunah shall together with all the relevant stakeholders i.e., Ministry of Youth and Sports, National Sports Authority, the Security Agencies and the COVID-19 Officer, Dr. Christine Baah ensure strict adherence of the CAF/FIFA COVID-19 protocols.”
“The GFA advise Ghanaians to obey all the Protocols strictly to first and foremost have a successful match and also to avoid any sanctions from CAF and FIFA,” they added.
The Group G encounter between Ghana and Zimbabwe will kick off at 1600GMT on Saturday at the Cape Coast Stadium.
Ghana are currently second in the group, a point behind South Africa.
