It was in the pipes, it’s now official. The supporters will fill the stands during the CHAN 2020.
The tournament reserved for local players will not be played behind closed doors. Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, the local organizing committee wanted to give the competition a different color by accepting the presence of supporters.
Approved by the African Football Confederation, COCAN’s decision will surely make people happy. But the stadiums will not be full since they will have a fill rate of 25%. It will be able to increase to 50% from the semi-finals.
In this period of health crisis, supporters must respect the Coronavirus prevention measures, namely wearing a mask, respecting social distancing and submitting to temperature control at the entrance to the various stadiums.
CHAN 2020 opens on January 16 with the meeting between Cameroon, the organizing country, and Zimbabwe.
