NSA declares 100% Accra Stadium capacity for Hearts-Kotoko Super Clash

The 2021/22 Ghana Premier League (GPL) match-day 7 outstanding game between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko will be played in a full capacity Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, February 20.

A signed statement by Peter Twumasi, the Director-General for the National Sports Authority (NSA) and issued late Friday said the decision was taken after consultations with the necessary agencies.

“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 the clubs receive clearance to play full capacity at the Accra Sports Stadium during the match between Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Sunday 20th February 2022, all attendees must strictly wear facemasks and observe social distancing.

“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.”

This is the first time since 2019 when the first cases of COVID-19 were reported in Ghana that fans will fill a stadium for a league game.

Prior to the start of the 2020/21 season, the government announced a 25% cap for fans at various match centers after an initial directive to play at empty stadiums.
