AFCON To Be Played With 60% Crowd Capacity

A decision has been reached by the Confederation of African Football after consultations with stakeholder to restrict crowd capacity for Cameroon’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) games to 80% in a bid to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Other matches to be played in the tournament, which begins on January 9 and ends February 6 will be restricted to a crowd capacity of 60%

“After many consultations with the Cameroonian government, in light of the evolution of the health crisis and the challenges imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Afcon and the local organising committee have agreed an upper limit of between 60 per cent-80 per cent for the capacity of stadiums in the Africa Cup of Nations,” CAF (African Football Federation) said.
