The National Sports Authority has confirmed that the game between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko will be played in front of a full capacity Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, February 20, 2022.
According to the press statement by the NSA, the decision to have a full house for the Super Clash was reached after consultation with the Ghana Health Service/COVID-19 Taskforce with all considerations noted.
The NSA had had an earlier request to scrap the 25% limit on stadium attendance rejected before the latest u-turn.
In January 2021, government granted permission for football stadiums across the country to admit up to 25% capacity, a revision from the ‘no fans’ at stadium directive that came into effect at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
Per the directive to have a full capacity stadium for the game, mandatory COVID-19 safety protocols will be ensured, while vaccination centres will be set up at the stadium for unvaccinated fans to get the jab.
