Kenyan Sports Fans Allowed Back into Stadiums

Supporters have been cleared to return to the venues to watch their teams after lifting of coronavirus restrictions.

The crowd will set at two-thirds the capacity following the lifting Covid-19 restrictions by the Ministry of Health, arising from reduced incidences in the country.

Kenya’s Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage confirmed the development in a statement sent to media houses on Saturday.

“Following the H.E the President’s announcement on revising the Covid-19 protocols and subsequent discussions between the Cabinet Secretary for Sports Amina Mohamed and the CS for Health Hon. Mutahi Kagwe, spectators will now be allowed into stadiums. Event organizers are expected to ensure they utilize upto 2/3rds capacity of the stadia,” the statement reads in part.

“For local events, the event organizers shall be expected to provide prior written approvals of the number of spectators allowable for the event by the federation registered in  Kenya,” added the statement.

“For international events, a similar approval shall be required from the local and international federation. Further, event organizers must demonstrate to the Ministry and Sports Kenya, their capacity to secure and manage their spectators and property during such events.

“All the other Resumption of Sports Protocols remain in force.”

Kenya issued banned fans from attending sporting venues in March 2020 when COVID-19 landed in the country.
