Why target only the Baba Yara stadium and Accra for a 25% capacity rule? – Kotoko Communications Manager Quiz


Asante Kotoko’s director of communications and brands David Obeng Nyarko criticized Ghanaian Premier League leaders for failing to implement the 25% stadium capacity directive in some match centers.

The government allowed stadiums to admit 25% capacity for football matches when it began to ease restrictions initially imposed to handle the spread of COVID-19.

The GFA was asked to ensure that the directive was strictly followed at all match venues.

However, images circulated on social media since the start of the Ghanaian Premier League 2021/2022 suggest that the directive has not been fully implemented in some match centers, particularly in away matches for Hearts and Kotoko. .

Spectators at Bibiani Dun’s Park

David Obeng Nyarko, expressing his frustration in an interview with Luv FM’s Kick-Off Show, referred to the attendance at Dun’s Park, where Bibiani Gold Stars hosted Asante Kotoko in a Week 3 league match, calling the situation “funny”.

“We understand that we are not in normal times and that we are in a period of COVID so some of these procedures and protocols must be observed. But we have a situation which is a little funny.

You travel to other fields for example if you watch our match against Bibiani Gold Stars and the stadium was 90% or even more than 100% full and no one is speaking, no one says anything, no one sends a letter or not suspend any club, ”lamented David.

David Obeng Nyarko worries the two most glamorous clubs in the country; Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko have always been the target when it comes to applying guidelines in the Ghanaian elite.

“Everyone is silent but when Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are playing we have to stick strictly to this arrangement, I think it’s not fair. Let’s be frank with ourselves, the government should step in. I think that other protocols have been listened to and that football also deserves to have our fans in the stadium.

“But we are ready to work with the government. I believe that football, especially Hearts and Kotoko, has what it takes to encourage a large part of the population to get vaccinated against COVID, ”he concluded.
