As a prelude to the African basketball championship which begins on Tuesday, August 24, the Rwandan basketball federation has decided to limit access to the stadium to supporters. Entry into the Kigali Arena to attend the African basketball championship will be conditioned by the presentation of a vaccination record.
This 30th edition of the 16 national male teams championship known as AfroBasket, was moved back a week due to the Covid pandemic.
Rwanda Basketball Federation says it is mandatory for Rwandans to have taken at least the first dose of a Covid vaccine to be allowed into the arena.
In a statement, the Federation also said “for those who are not vaccinated yet, a vaccination desk will be established” at the arena.
Spectators will also be required to present a negative test result, and buy an entrance ticket of at least $7.
