The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has called on spectators who will be going to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi to watch the Ghana-Nigeria clash to obey all the rules governing the World Cup qualifier in order to avoid sanctions from the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
“The GFA consequently advises all Ghanaians to obey all laid-down safety and security measures strictly to, first and foremost, have a successful match and also to avoid any sanctions from CAF and FIFA,” the GFA noted in a statement.
This comes after CAF agreed that Ghana admit up to 40,000 spectators at the stadium for the match between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The GFA had requested to play in a full-capacity stadium.
The statement added: “Meanwhile, fans are advised to strictly adhere to the designated spectator and stakeholders entry points and gates for verification of their tickets.”
The game is expected to begin at 1930 GMT on Friday, 25 March 2022.
