Deputy General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Titus Beyuo has kicked against the decision by the Ghana Football Association, GFA to allow fans into the various stadia from today, April 2.

A statement by the GFA said clubs who have successfully met all requirements set by its Executive Council will be allowed to admit fans up to 25 percent capacity of each stadium.

The requirements include the training of club stewards who are to be responsible for implementing the COVID-19 protocols on each match day.

Reacting to this, Dr. Titus Beyuo advised the GFA to learn from best practices elsewhere or risk having a third wave of the pandemic.  

In a related development, the Ghana Football Association, GFA says it has rescinded its decision to allow fans into the various stadia.

This was after the GFA held consultative meetings with the National COVID-19 task force.

A statement from the Communications Department of the GFA said the decision is based on measures being put in place to combat the pandemic during the Easter festivities, taking into consideration efforts by government to avoid a third wave of the virus.

It adds that the GFA will continue to work closely with the National COVID-19 task force to ensure a safer return of spectators to the various match venues.
