The country's football governing body, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has cautioned to clubs to ensure Covid-19 protocols are enforced or stadia will be shut down.

A meeting was held between the clubs and the FA on how Covid19 protocols will be enforced during matchdays.

General Secretary of the GFA, Prosper Harrison Addo, during a virtual meeting with Safety & Security Officers and Representatives of the 18 Premier League Clubs on Wednesday, January 20 said stadia will be closed down if protocols are not obeyed.

The meeting which was to review the Covid-19 Protocols and Operations was held as a result of some breaches of the GFA’s Matchday Covid-19 protocols at some match venues.

The Ghana Government recently gave the go-ahead for stadiums to admit 25% capacity, on condition that the Covid-19 protocols are strictly adhered to.

But the compliance has been poor so far at various match venues.

The Ghana Football Association have stated that they will continue to monitor the situation and will take the necessary steps to ensure compliance.

The matchday 10 of the Ghana Premier League come on this weekend at the various stadia.
