The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) increased spectator capacity from 25% to 50% on Monday and allowed children under the age of 12 to enter the stadium during Pakistan Super League (PSL) Lahore leg matches, according to a statement.
The NCOC had allowed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to fill the stadium at 25% capacity for the Karachi leg and had also prohibited children under the age of 12 from entering the stadium. The PCB was chastised for prohibiting children from watching cricket at the stadium.
According to the NCOC statement, 50% fully vaccinated spectators will be permitted until February 15, and 100% fully vaccinated fans will be permitted beginning February 16.
The decision was revised during the forum’s meeting in Islamabad, which was presided over by Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Mr. Asad Umar.
In light of the rising coronavirus cases, the NCOC reduced the crowd capacity to 25% just days before the start of the PSL’s seventh edition. However, as the positivity rate falls, the forum’s decision has been revised.
The Lahore leg matches, which will be played entirely under the lights of the Gaddafi Stadium, will begin on February 10 with the unbeaten Multan Sultans taking on the Peshawar Zalmi.
