The National Sports Authority (NSA) has announced that Accra Sports Stadium will have full capacity for the Super Clash between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
Initially, the stadium was supposed to host 25% of fans due to Covid-19 restrictions, but the government has approved full capacity per request of the NSA.
“Per consultation of Governing Board of the Authority with the Ghana Health Service/Covid-19 Taskforce, I have been directed to officially inform you that as clubs receive clearance to play full capacity at the Accra Sports Stadium during the match between the Accra Sports Stadium and Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Sunday 20th February 2022, all attendees must strictly wear facemasks and observe social distancing,” a statement signed by NSA Director-General Prof. Peter Twumasi read.
“You are, therefore, advised to work closely with the Authority’s Management, Covid-19 Taskforce and other stakeholders to enforce this directive.”
“Ghana Health Service will also mount vaccination centres to offer free COVID-19 vaccination to spectators and the general public,” the statement added.
Hearts are desperate to secure three points to cut the gap at the summit which is occupied by Asante Kotoko.
A defeat for Hearts of Oak will see them end the first round 15 points behind Kotoko who will be nine points clear at the top.
