This has been revealed by Sports CS Amina Mohamed, who said the measure is meant to curb the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

Stars will need nothing short of a win if they have to keep their Afcon qualification dreams alive but the Pharaohs are expected to give them a tough test on home soil.

The CS, in a statement on Thursday, reminded Kenyans that the Resumption of Sports Guidelines and the Ministry of Health Safety protocols states that only the players, official team handlers, assigned security, and match officials shall be allowed into the stadium.

The match is crucial for both teams as they angle for a slot during the competition’s finals in Cameroon 2022. Whereas a draw will be enough for The Pharaohs in their push to seal progression, Stars need a win to revive their chances of qualifying.
