Champions League: Fans to be allowed in stadium to watch Esperance vs Al Ahly

Tunisian authorities have authorized the presence of fans for the first leg of the African Champions League semi-final between Esperance of Tunis and Al Ahly on Saturday, which will be the first match with the public since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

Some 5,000 people have been authorized to enter the 60,000-seat Rades stadium, the Tunisian Football Federation told AFP. They will all have to wear a mask and present a negative PCR test, Riadh Bennour, an executive of the Tunisian club, told private radio Mosaïque, adding that a free test cell will be opened Friday for ticket holders.

The Egyptian club Al Ahly, nine times winner of the CAF Champions League, qualified for this new edition of the competition by eliminating in late May Mamelodi Sundowns FC (South Africa). Esperance de Tunis qualified on penalties against Algerian club CR Belouizdad.
