CAF approves 40,000 spectators for Ghana – Nigeria clash

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has approved Ghana’s request to admit 40,000 spectators for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 play-off first leg match against Nigeria at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

This comes after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) request to play the game in full capacity stadium following the laid-down rules by CAF.

“The GFA consequently advise 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,” a statement from the FA said.

It added: “Meanwhile, fans are advised to strictly adhere to the designated spectator and stakeholders entry points and gates for verification of their tickets.”

The play-off match between the Black Stars and the Super Eagles will kick off at 1930 GMT on Friday (25 March 25).
