Rwanda To Allow Limited Number Of Fans Back To The Stadiums

Fans will be allowed back into the stadiums for the start of the 2021-22 Rwanda National Football League, Sports Minister Aurore Mimosa Munyangaju has confirmed.

Supporters were unable to attend National Football League matches last season due to social distancing restrictions designed to contain the spread of coronavirus.

However, only a few numbers of fans will be permitted to attend the matches after the Sports Ministry holds final meeting the Rwanda Football officials.

“The fans will be allowed in stadiums and preventive guidelines aimed at protecting their health safety will be put in place, ”said Munyangaju in an interview with Rwandan daily,  New Times.

“We are now going to agree on the number of fans who will be allowed into the stadiums, preventive protocols and safe ticketing system [preferably online ticketing] to ensure that nobody gets infected or spreads the virus from the stadium.”

The decision by Sports Ministry means that Rwanda will seek for approval from Confederation of African Football (CAF) so that fans can attend their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The Amavubi are scheduled to host Kenya at Kigali Stadium on Sunday September 5 in their second match after playing Mali away in Agadir, Morocco.

Malian authorities were forced to take the game away as their facilities were banned because they don’t meet minimum requirements to host international matches.

Rwanda’s s last competitive match was an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Cameroon in July but they have since played two friendlies against the Central African Republic.
