The clash of the second day of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers between Côte d'Ivoire and Cameroon on September 6 will be played in front of a crowd! This long awaited confrontation will indeed see the presence of 10,000 spectators. However, this figure remains below the number requested by the Ivorian authorities. The latter were asking for 20,000 spectators in the Ebimpe Olympic Stadium.
This news is an exception to the general closure decreed by CAF and FIFA for the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers in the African zone. The decision of the African football body is officially confirmed by the Ivorian side. The Elephants will be able to rely on their fans to help them beat Cameroon, who are currently leading Group D.
