Kuwait bars football fans pending health plan

– Kuwait’s Public Authority for Sport has decided to deny football fans access to stadiums until a fleshed-out blueprint is put in place in line with relevant health guidelines.

The move came in the aftermath of a recent local match during which fans had failed to follow health guidelines pertinent to physical distancing at the stadium, the authority said in a press statement.

It warned that it would not be lenient in applying all health precautions and requirements in order to fend off the spreading of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the country.

The authority noted that it will hold a meeting with the football association on Sunday to ponder over a clear-cut plan aiming at ensuring that all health guidelines would be respected at all stadiums.
