The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that Ghana’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Sudan on Thursday, November 12, at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, will take place behind closed doors.
The decision taken by the GFA is in line with a number of measures taken by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), to ensure that games are played in the safest possible way.
CAF, earlier this week instructed that all AFCON qualifier games should be played under strict conditions to ensure that players, referees and officials are protected from COVID-19.
“As a result, players, technical team members, essential service providers and ball boys will undergo mandatory COVID-19 tests before the match,” the GFA said in a statement on its website.
The GFA further added that “there will be no post-match press conference, Mixed Zone and Flash photo opportunities as only the photographers of the two teams will be granted access. But the Communications team will conduct a virtual post-match press conference via the official facebook page of the Ghana Football Association.”
Ghana will face Sudan on Thursday, November 12, 2020, in an AFCON 2021 qualifier at 4:00 pm at the Cape Coast stadium. The Black Stars will then return to Khartoum for the reverse fixture on November 17, 2020.
Ghana has 6 points from their first two games in the qualifying series, having beaten South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in the group.
